Tree Following November 2015 – both trees

Both Liz’s Stewartia and the fig tree show little of interest this month so it’s another combined post.

Liz's Stewartia Nov'15 -1

 

Liz’s Stewartia  is now past it’s glory days of summer with just a few leaves still hanging on.  Interest now centres on trees behind it with the fringe tree’s (chionanthus virginicus) green leaves and a kousa dogwood with dark red ones.

 

 

 

Liz's Stewartia Nov'15 - 2Growing all around the foot of the Stewartia is creeping Charlie (glechoma hederacea),  and at the front are some self-seeded feverfew, geranium Biokova and a few chrysanthemum Sheffield.

Thanks to Mike for letting me guest post this year, it’s been fun.  Thanks also to Pat who has taken over hosting Tree Following from Lucy (details and links below).

 

 

Fig tree Nov'15

 

The fig tree shed all it’s leaves shortly after I took last month’s pictures, along with the unripe fruit.  The leaves in this picture are on the grapevine that I mentioned last month.

What is noticeable is how grey the bark is and that there’s new green growth at the tips of the branches.

 

 

See Pat’s Tree Following post for details of what this is all about,  and this one for links to other Tree Following posts for this month.

Lastly many thanks to Lucy for hosting Tree Following up to now.

    It’s definitely trees hibernation time, they are past their Autumn glory; they look decidedly wintry.

  2. There was a time when I felt that leaf drop was the end until spring. I now find that walking through the garden this time of year really lets me see the wonderful shape and interesting bark that many of these trees hide during the summer months.

  3. These are grey days, aren’t they? No wonder we insert Halloween and Bonfire Night (and Christmas) at this time of year!
    As I look through my window here in Cardiff I see there are still lots of leaves (golden and green) on our ash and sycamore trees, so winter seems to be drawing on more quickly where you two live.
    Thank you both for your regular tree following and may we all continue to be together in 2016…
    All the best 🙂

      Pat hello. There’s been too many lately. There are still plenty of trees here in leaf.
      Thanks for the thanks, and I’m sure we will. And to you too. xx

    The trees here are still managing to hang on to some leaves even though the wind has been doing its best to blow them off over the last couple of days. It’s interesting to see the grapevine now that the fig tree is bare.

  5. Lovely tree posts I must sort one out for next season post and remember to look up Pat’s blog. Have a blessed day
