The plot trees – March 2011

Dreamfalcon over on The Tree Year suggested observing our tree for eleven minutes.  I don’t wear a watch whilst plotting so my observation time was somewhat approximate.

It was done one day last week, whilst planting onion sets in the vegetable patch, when the plot robin spent much of the time perched on the hawthornkeeping an eye on what I was doing, and looking out for tasty worms.

Close up the leaves are now starting to appear

The plum tree has signs of leaves to come, but the oak tree remains very twig like!  More on these two next month.

    That’s a lovely photo with the robin perched in the tree. It’s lovely to see all the trees springing back to life with buds bursting and leaves appearing almost overnight.

    The little robin looks adorable on the bare tree. It adds a soft touch!

    I think your little robin friends are super, especially when one has been so obliging as to sit atop your Hawthorn for a photo op. Don’t you just love that verdant colour of brand new leaves? My Oakley is very twigley too.

    I agree with everyone, the Robin in the Hawthorn steals the show 🙂

  5. I think you’re feeding the plot Robin very well Flighty 😉

    Looks like the robin is observing the tree with you 🙂 Love that shot of the new leaves emerging. Yay for Spring!
