The lack of rain and high temperatures here in Lexington, Kentucky continued through September and the serviceberry, seen here on the left of the first picture, seems to have suffered more than the surrounding trees. Many of the leaves have dropped without changing colour.
The branches in the sunlight now give a pleasing tracery effect on the asphalt driveway.
Thanks to Mike for letting me guest post, and to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree Following.
Young oak tree
Following on the from last month this tree soon lost it’s acorns, mostly I suspect to the squirrels. It’s certainly grown taller during the year.
The leaves are still mostly green although a few are starting to go yellow then brown as shown in this picture.
Do have a look at this comprehensive post over on Pat’s, The Squirrelbasket, blog to see what Tree Following is all about.
