Tree following – November 2014

As you can see the willow tree leaves still haven’t changed colour let alone dropped, which I presume is down to the relatively mild temperatures.  This view also shows the decidedly lop-sided look when viewed from the fence line.

The willow tree, November

Willow tree leaves, November

Looking closer at the leaves it’s clear that they are just beginning to change colour and will presumably drop before too long.

For plenty of other interesting, and informative, tree following posts have a look at the list on Lucy’s Loose and Leafy post.

Have a good week!

    I read that color changes are due to length of day. You got a nice shot of the tree and blue skies, too!

    My weeping willow is looking much more autumnal than that.
    Oh dear, I wish someone would even your poor tree up, it looks dreadful shorn on one side and not the other.

    Some trees are completely bare by now, others have hardly lost a leaf. Your photo could have been taken in summer, it’s lovely. A bit of a shame that one side of the tree hasn’t been left to dangle down – children love the den-like effect of that, perfect for hiding in. A small local weeping birch died suddenly this summer, which was disappointing because everyone liked playing under it. I’ve no idea what happened, one day it was fine, a few weeks later every single leaf was brown and crispy. Good to see your tree looking so healthy. CJ xx

      CJ better that than them all losing their leaves at the same time. It is, but in one way it does make it more interesting. It’s a shame when a tree dies suddenly like that. It sure is. xx

    I have happy memories of playing under the lower branches of a weeping willow in the grounds of my primary school. Your tree really is holding onto its leaves isn’t it!

    That is an elegant and majestic tree.

  6. snowbird says:

    Goodness me, it is clinging grimly onto it’s leaves for sure! A wonderful

  7. Definitely a colour change. Maybe it will gracefully let its leaves fall together – like dropping a skirt. Fascinating shape. Idiosyncratic. It certainly has personality, your tree.

    It’s beautiful. I noticed the willow by the lake at Temple Newsam on Sunday still had it’s leaves but they’re a much lighter colour now.

  9. Kif says:

    Such a pretty tree – love seeing the changes!

  10. Definitely starting to turn, still looking very pretty though, despite looking as lopsided as my fringe does when I trim it myself!

    It has been an odd autumn for leaf colour. Not as spectacular as previous years. It’s surprising how many trees still have most of their leaf canopy. Some trees haven’t turned colour at all. There’s a colder week ahead though so maybe that will make a difference. Lovely light in that photo. xx

    Welly I agree with what you say. The willow is now shedding it’s leaves, as you’ll see in the next tree following post coming soon. xx
