Liz in a very cold and wintry Lexington, Kentucky is still mulling over which tree she’s going to follow this year, and will hopefully join in from next month.
I’ve chosen a group of three Medlars that are on one of the other allotment plots. I know very little about these trees except that the fruit is not popular except to make jellies. These trees are mature, and as you can the area beneath and around is used as a dumping ground. They’re generally not pruned and the fruit is usually not picked and used.
It’ll be interesting to see the leaves, blossom and fruit on these through the coming year.
Coincidentally just a couple of weeks ago Uphilldowndale mentioned medlars in her blog post Two for the price of one, part one.
Thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for continuing to host Tree following.

Have a good weekend!
