Tree following, October 2017

Liz’s Tulip poplar in her garden over in Lexington, Kentucky continues to grow taller and is now around twelve feet high.

Despite the time of year, and a recent lack of rain, the uniquely shaped glossy green leaves show little sign of turning golden yellow and coppery brown.


For more information on these wonderful trees have a look at Deepdale trees webpage.

Flighty’s Dogwood is still continuing to flower as mentioned last month.  The leaves are now turning brownish-red and starting to drop.


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

Have a good weekend!

    There’s certainly been lots of changes throughout the year. The dogwood looks lovely in flower.

    Beautiful. I love both of those. I particularly love the dogwood’s autumn colours. And the flower is a bonus.

    Is that your aster with those blue-violet blooms? A nice complement to the dogwood’s little flowers. How nice that Liz’s tree has such pretty leaves at this time of year!

    Both stunning updates thank you for sharing have a blessed weekend

  5. Liz’s tree . . I don’t know whether it’s my imagination or that the picture has been taken from a different angle . . . but it seems to have mightily grown!
    Flighty’s Dogwood – how pretty the flowers are . . and how good to have a tree flowering in October.

  6. Those both look lovely – although I am surprised the tulip tree is still solidly green. Here in South Wales the leaves are well into changing colour and dropping off.
    All the best and thanks for contributing 🙂

    I too am surprised how green the tulip tree is. Your flowering dogwood is
