Liz – These pictures of the black walnut were taken three weeks ago, a couple of days before a storm came through Lexington, Kentucky. With winds reaching 70 mph it knocked down trees and there was no electricity for a day.
As you can see this tree has a lovely canopy, and a closer look reveals that one of the limbs has been badly scarred as shown in the two photos below.
My thanks to Mike for letting me post here.
Mike – As I mentioned last month the medlars are full of fruit and I took a closer look at them a few days ago. Each one is about the size of a golf ball and still very hard.
With an open bottom these fruits are very distinctive. I will now be checking them periodically over the coming weeks to see if they show any sign of ripening.
