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.

Take care, and have a good weekend!
