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.
