Tree following, May 2018

Liz, over in Lexington, Kentucky, isn’t doing an update on the black walnut this month as she has been rather busy recently, including preparing for a plant sale and keeping tabs on her wayward puppy Sophie.

On the allotment site the medlars are now in full leaf and look much better than when they were bare and showing a mass of twisted branches.

The largest leaves are about six inches long and a couple of inches wide,  and there lots of flowers buds showing.

When I looked yesterday a couple of buds had already flowered so I must remember to have a close look every few days and not leave it until next month and miss them.

Our thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree following.  If anyone wants to find more, and perhaps follow a tree please click on the link over on the right-hand side.

Have a good weekend!

    What a difference now that they’re in full leaf. I doubt it will be long before those flowers are out.

  2. Beautiful green! Hope you get some good flower photos!
    Have a great day!

    Trees always look somehow happier when they are covered in green leaves. Those flower buds look promising.

    What a difference a few weeks make! Springtime green – gorgeous.

  5. Good to find the time to read your posts again; lovely to read as ever and yes, loving that new intense green foliage you get at this time of year; can’t beat it! x

    I’m really enjoying all the fresh green leaves everywhere. Those flower buds look promising. I must take up my tree following again for my mature oak tree. I only managed one post and then took seriously ill and couldn’t visit it for a whole year, even though it was just over the back garden fence and I could see it from the house. I used that tree as my focus when I was ill and in pain. So, as I’m much better now, it deserves my attentions again. Enjoy your weekend, Mike. Karen x

  8. Lots of leafery going on there! No wonder it’s hard to spot the flower buds.
    All the best until next month 🙂
