Umbrellas indeed, but the shape of these trees also reminds me of those lollies you can by on a stick, red umbrella shaped, hard boiled sweets that you can suck on for hours.

Very British, the tress that is not the sweets.

I think that they look like little old men ... wonderful little old men.

Wonders if someone still has to trim these trees in this shape? Look like giant green mushrooms too! Reminds me of my bonsai tree that moulted and then told me how it wanted to grow! Plant intelligence?
