Tree following, September 2017

Liz’s Tulip poplar – Over in Lexington, Kentucky Liz has been really busy recently with various garden events but sent me these two pictures.


As you can see if you compare these to the picture in the Tree following, July 2017 post she has removed the lower branch that she mentioned which certainly gives it a better, more balanced look.  Liz also tells me that the tree is now too tall to measure properly but it must now be approaching ten feet.

Flighty’s Dogwood –  A few of the leaves have already started to get a reddish-brown tinge to them indicating that autumn is on the way.  Mind you it’s also got some new leaves and, more surprisingly, flowers as well.


That’s a sign that the changing weather patterns are confusing much of our flora.

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

    Thank you for sharing and posting on behalf of Liz, both have a blessed day.

    I’m not surprised that the dogwood is getting a few tinges to its leaves, autumn’s here and winter is on the way. Surprising, as you say, that it’s got flowers though. It’s always a bonus to get a few extra blooms.

    I love the fall tinges to the leaves. Yes, strange that you have a bloom on your dogwood too!
    Thanks to you for posting my fast-growing tree and to Pat for coordination.

  4. Good news all round, then! Both your trees are looking very healthy.
    Your autumn leaf colour is looking very promising. And do you get berries after those flowers, I wonder?
    Have you been affected by Storm Aileen overnight?
    All the best to you both 🙂

      Pat hello, and thanks. I hope that the leaves fully change colour before they drop. Interesting point about the berries so I’ll keep an eye out to see what happens.
      It was windy overnight, with gusts up to 50 mph, so I wasn’t surprised to find that my climbing beans had toppled over as had the tall sunflower.
      And to you too. xx
