Tree following, June 2018

Liz – I took these pictures here in Lexington, Kentucky last Thursday on a bright sunny morning. One shows that the black walnut is now in full leaf and almost hides the mistletoe that was visible towards the top right.  The other shows where the trunk has forked at some stage, and also the shape of the leaves.


It’s a minor miracle that I managed to take these pictures as I was standing on the dog leash when I did.  Dulcie (left) has adopted Charley’s role of let’s get this over with whilst Sophie is being quite good.


Mike –  The medlars flowered soon after last months post with the large white flowers only lasting a few days, and as can be seen numerous fruit buds are already starting to form.

    Great close up of the forked trunk and leaves, Liz. A miracle really with the dog leash under your feet. It is good to see both the trees in good health now and the medlars starting to fruit.
    Thanks and have a good weekend to you both!

  2. Beautiful Black Walnut tree! Great photos!
    I am not familiar with Medlars, so I am learning new things from you – thank you!

      Lea it sure is. I agree. Nor am I so like you learning all about these trees. xx

    • Liz says:

      Lea, the black walnuts are quite magnificent. Unfortunately, like all walnuts, they are fussy about what plant they will tolerate nearby. I’ve learned that in my own garden with European walnuts! Liz

    Really interesting updates on both trees, fantastic choices, looking forward to seeing and hearing more, especially when they start setting fruit! Way to go Liz with those pups, lovely seeing them so content

    • Flighty says:

      Snowbird thanks. I’m looking forward to seeing both set fruit. xx

    • Liz says:

      Snowbird, the tree has got way ahead from me while I wasn’t looking. The dogs are really getting on well together. The pup forces Dulcie to rough house and to run around the back garden. Good for both of them. Thanks, Liz

  6. Thank you both for taking part again – I’m loving both your trees (and the dogs!) – plenty of healthy growth.
    I’m glad you caught that lovely flower on the medlar while it lasted – very pretty and delicate.
    Have a good summer 🙂

      Pat you’re welcome, that’s good to know.
      Me too as they only lasted a few days.
      Thanks, and you too. xx

      Pat, you’re very kind to host the tree following. I’ve been caught up with other things, so have not been as conscientious about the black walnut as I should have been. Plan to be better in July! Thx. Liz
