Tree following, November 2019

Liz – This is the now flowering Witch hazel in my garden here in Lexington, Kentucky.  I think that it’s quite an extraordinary sight when the flowers, looking like little strips of yellow ribbon,  appear at this time of year.  Even Dulcie appreciates the view.


The flowers will appear even more striking against the dark coloured stems once the leaves have dropped.

Mike – There has been very little change with the apple tree as many of the leaves are still green or just starting to change colour.

    I think the differences in trees are highlighted in the types you’ve each chosen, one flowering and the other getting ready to drop its leaves.

      Nikki, the witch hazel flowers are cool, aren’t they. The remaining leaves have fallen in the past couple of days so it is just the yellow fluttering against the branches. Liz

    Those witch hazel flowers look very cool. Kind of like green spider legs!

  6. I hadn’t realized that witch hazel flowers already. How very brave!

  7. Lovely to see two different stages of the tree year at the same time. Thanks for sharing!
    All the best to you both 🙂
