Following on from last month’s post What willow? I took a few more detailed photos a couple of weeks ago. It’s taken rather a battering over the winter months and has lost several bigger branches, one of which can be seen in this picture.
Orchardier, who is following a A year in the life of a Bramley Apple Tree, commented that the willow is a good choice, as it supports a huge amount of wild life. That includes many of the birds that I see on the allotments such as a pair of blue tits which I saw on it as I was going through the gates one morning during the week.
It’s good to see that there are now around 50 tree followers, of which nearly half have done posts in the past few days about the trees that they’re following as you can see in Lucy’s post Ready, Steady – and We’re Off! If you want to join in then please do so as it’s not too late, and there are no deadlines. All you need do is choose a tree to follow and blog about, then let Lucy know, via either of these links, so she can add the details to the list.
Happy tree following, and have a good week!
