Following on from last month’s post the willow leaves have now fully grown and the branches are now mostly hidden.
As I’ve mentioned previously this tree is just outside the allotments on a grass area at the rear some council flats. All this area is mowed fairly regularly so the branches are mostly kept trimmed to well above head height as can be seen in the left-hand picture below.
The picture on the right shows inside the allotment site where the grass isn’t cut so the branches grow to almost ground level. This area around, and under, the tree is covered with cow parsley and stinging nettles.
For this month’s posts by over forty other tree followers see Lucy’s post for links.
Happy tree following, and have a good week!
