Liz – these pictures of the Seven-Sons tree in my back garden, here in Lexington, Kentucky, were taken last week just before torrential rain started.
Because the blossom appears later in the year there’s been little apparent change since last month apart from it getting leafier.
The picture below also shows my Zephirine Drouhin thornless climbing rose that I thought I’d lost.
The yellow discolouration on the bark is of note, as are the marks which look like scaring or scoring.
Mike – Over the course of the past couple of months the Hornbeam in the local park has gone from looking golden-yellow to bright green and is now much darker, as seen here.
The branches are only visible from close-to and underneath as the fully grown leaves now cover the the tree.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
