This is Liz’s second guest Tree Following post following on from last month’s.
It was Lucy’s post You’ve got to see it to believe it last Tuesday about the view near Chesil Beach, Dorset, UK, and how the same area changes by season that inspired me to do something similar with the Japanese Stewartia that I’m following.
Here is the Stewartia in mid-February just after we had nearly a foot of snow here in central Kentucky.
It stayed like that until the end of the month when, despite continuing temperatures well below freezing, the ground finally starting to show again.
My dogs, Charlie and Dulcie, decided that they had better things to do than inspect the tree so they chased wild woozles! To look at their girth you would have no idea that they go on daily walks. Watching them look busy reminds me of Pooh and Piglet – hence the wild woozles which must be kept at bay.
My thanks to Mike for letting me guest post, and to Lucy for hosting Tree Following.

Footnote ~ Liz sent me this post during last week since when there has been another snowstorm which made the news here in the UK.
