Cambridge Flooding: Willow In The Water

This is a view across the river Cam. On the far side the river has burst its banks and reached almost up the boathouses.

Tamara and I walk along this side of the river sometimes, and we discuss how it is that the branches of the trees are trimmed off so neatly. Tamara says it must be people who trim them. I say that the trees on the Common are trimmed by cows, so perhaps some animals do that here. It’s unlikely though because there is no access for cows. So she is probably right.
