Here in Lexington, Kentucky following a rather dry period it’s been dreary with intermittent showers to start October off. The Stewartia leaves are now changing colour giving it an autumnal look. I’m hoping that before they drop they’ll provide an en masse display of colour. I’m also wondering what the white splodges are on the leaves. In the right hand-hand picture green lichen can be seen on the bark.
My usual thanks to Mike for letting me guest post, and to Lucy for hosting Tree Following.
A Fig Tree
Taking a look at this tree last week I wondered if any of the figs had ripened enough to eat but I’ve not seen Trevor to ask him.
That apart it’s noticeable how the the leaves are now changing colour from glossy green to golden yellow as they die back prior to dropping.
See Lucy’s Tree Following post (link above) for details of what this is all about, and this one for links to other Tree Following posts for this month.
Have a good weekend!
