Following last months Tree Following post all the leaves on the young oak tree soon turned brown, as this picture shows which was taken mid November.
Here it is between a lovely conifer and a butterfly loving buddleja, with the magnificent willow that I followed a few years ago in the background.
The leaves have now started dropping and it’s interesting to see contrast in colour between the front and back of them, with the latter being much lighter.
I’ve enjoyed following this tree through the year, and certainly learnt some new facts about oaks.
Thanks as usual to Pat, over on The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree Following this year, and I’m pleased to see that she will be continuing to do so next year. I’ll be doing it again but have yet to decide on what tree to follow, although I do have one in mind.
Have a good weekend!
