Liz – The pictures of the seven son tree in my garden, here in Lexington, Kentucky, were taken at the end of October.
As you can see the pink sepals were still hanging in there, and leaves just beginning to turn yellow and starting to fall.
There is some interesting colouration and marks on the trunk , and there are still remnants of the original tree that died out a decade ago to be succeeded this present one that unexpectedly sprung to life during 2015.
Mike – At last the leaves on the hornbeam in the local park are now changing colour and starting to drop and will form a golden-yellow carpet on the grass.
I’m looking forward seeing the tree leafless so that I can see the branches in more detail and how they form the distinctive fan shape.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
