Tree following, June 2017

Liz’s Tulip popular…Apologies but I’ve been rather busy lately so just a few words and a picture.

 

During the past month this tree here in my Lexington, Kentucky garden has surprisingly grown another two feet so is now around six feet tall.

 

 

Flighty’s Dogwood (Cornus)… Following on from last month this tree was in full blossom by mid-May, and on several warm sunny days it was good to see it buzzing with bumble and honey bees.

Sadly it lasted all too briefly and within a couple of weeks had finished.Β 

Our thanks, as usual, to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, Β for hosting Tree following.

Have a good weekend!

    It’s amazing how quickly that little Tulip poplar is growing. The Cornus looks lovely in bloom, just a shame that it’s over all too quickly.

    Oh how lovely is your dogwood. One of my favourites, we had to leave 3 little ones behind on 14b. Oh me, oh my…xxxx

    Goodness, Liz’s tree sure is shooting up! Loved seeing the dogwood flowering, shame it didn’t last longer, glad that it’s so good for bees.xxx

    Two feet in a month, wow! Beautiful dogwood blossoms, I had no idea they were so short-lived.
