The pathway connecting Walthamstow Bus Station with the Town Square is surrounded by what might look like your usual row of trees to the many untrained eyes passing them on the way to Selbourne Shopping Mall.
Only some attentive souls have noticed though that we are in fact looking at a very special kind of tree. Trees that carry a rather unusual kind of fruit around Art Trail time. www.e17arttrail.co.uk
As a result of gentle nursing by members of the Waltham Forest Arts Club www.artsclub.org.uk, this September will be the fifth season during which the trees will be growing pieces of art for all members of the community to pick, take home and enjoy.
The trees will be in particularly full bloom on Saturday 3 and Saturday 10 September 2011. These are the days when art pickers are most likely to find a nice, fresh choice.
