Tree following, November 2020

Liz – Last Sunday was a glorious, sunny day here in Lexington, Kentucky so Mary, my daughter, suggested that we go to the park where my white oak is.

As I have a bad back at present I sat on a bench whilst she took my two dogs, Dulcie and Sophie, for a walk.

As you can see the oak tree leaves are changing colour and dropping, which isn’t surprising seeing as it’s now late autumn.


After a winter rest I’m hoping that the tree will have recovered from the fungal disease that badly affected it earlier this year.

Mike –  The plum tree is now bare having dropped almost all of the leaves.   Close up you can see just how tangled it all is.


Although it didn’t fruit this year it does most years bearing lots of small yellow plums.  It wasn’t pruned much, if at all, when the plot was in use, and which is now untended. I wonder what will happen to this tree as and when someone takes the plot on.

Our thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for continuing to host Tree following. If you want to know more about this please click on the link shown over on the right-hand side.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    Wow! Didn’t realize my “kids” would be featured in November tree following. All the deciduous trees here in Kentucky are changing color and dropping leaves. This year has been weird in so many ways the world over, so it’s good to see consistency in Mother Nature‘s trees. Thanks, Mike for posting my tree this year and to Pat for hosting the meme.

    Are the plums sweet, Flighty? I don’t think I’ve seen yellow ones before.

    Sorry to hear about your back Liz, I hope that improves quickly. Lovely seeing your kids and the oak. My plum tree is a mass of tangled branches too, it seems to grow so

      Snowbird thank you for the back back well wishes. I am lucky to have one of my daughters (pictured) live about two miles from my home and she has been kind to come and walk my dogs each morning before going to work. Liz.
