Big old remnant Cedars in the Asian Collection

I have mixed feelings about them. They are beautiful but the do cast awfully heavy shade year round and drop heavy branches on plants underneath them. Plus the Cedrus atlantica isn't really Asian, though the Deodar's are. Anyway I do like the cones; they're always arrayed in such balanced patterns that you can almost shoot randomly with a camera and get a well composed picture. I guess, like people, some plants are more photogenic than others!

Guess I'm a cedar lover, both of the atlantica and the lovely and graceful Deodar, not to mention my own native Western Red. But I can imagine it's a bit trying when they are regularly creaming or shading the smaller things below!
