Liz – There has been a drought here in Lexington, Kentucky for the past six weeks so it’s not surprising that my Witch Hazel has shown signs of stress. It was the driest and hottest September on record.
Once the leaves have been shed the flower buds now starting to form will appear providing much welcome colour into the winter.
Mike – All the fruit both on the Apple tree and scattered on the ground have now gone and the leaves are showing first signs of changing colour prior to shedding. Looked at from this side it doesn’t appear to be lop-sided which it is viewed from the other side thanks to being hacked rather injudiciously rather than pruned properly.
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 shown over on the right-hand side.
Have a good weekend!
