Liz – Here in Lexington, Kentucky I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago which show the black walnut in summer. There had been several days of high winds and thunder storms hence the debris on the ground which Dulcie and Sophie are inspecting.
This tree provides plenty of shade but beware of standing underneath when an immature fruit falls. It’s interesting to look up and see the nut clusters forming.
My thanks to Mike for letting me post here.
Mike – The medlars, with branches low to the ground, now hide the rubbish that is underneath them and was visible earlier in the year. They are covered in forming fruit apart from one or two flowers that just appear to be dying.
New leaf growth is clearly visible being a much lighter green.

Have a good weekend!
