Tree following, June 2019

A brief post for both trees this month.

Liz…The witch hazel in my garden here in Lexington, Kentucky is alongside the path to the front door and arches over it to provide a shady canopy, which is most welcome in hot weather.  The right-hand picture shows the leaf colour and detail.


Mike…The apple tree has been dropping lots of small fruit to allow the remaining ones to grow on to full size over the coming months.

The biggest one in the picture is about the size of a marble and as you can see already has a partially red skin.

Our thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree following as usual.  If you want to see what it’s all about, and perhaps follow one too,  please click on the link over on the right-hand side.

Have a good weekend!

    The garden looks as pretty as a picture with the witch hazel arching over the path.
    I hope you don’t lose too many apples, I shall have to have a look at my trees and see if they’re doing the same.

    Mike, I forget. Is the apple tree on someone’s plot or on common ground. I was wondering if you’d ever tasted one of those apples?
    Thanks to Pat for tree following.

  3. Thanks to both of you for posting – looks like all is progressing just as it should!
    Best wishes 🙂

    That is a good sized witch hazel! I’m losing lots of apples and pears at the moment

    The arch of the witch hazel looks beautiful too.
    I think fruits trees are like that. Here in Malaysia, our rambutan tree has been dropping lots of small fruits too – to allow for other fruits to grow to full size.
    Thanks and same to you!

    Y’know, Liz, I had no idea witch hazel was so attractive in leaf. Nice photo.
    Mike, hard to believe those marble-sized little things will get to full size!
