Tree following, December 2022

Liz –  Here is the Golden Spirit smoke tree in my front garden in Lexington, Kentucky.

The photos were taken late afternoon a few days ago, and as you see it’s now dropped all its leaves exposing the bare limbs.

It appears to be pitching towards the west even though that’s where the prevailing, and strongest,  winds come from.




As an aside I recently saw an item on the BBC World News about bio-filters using moss to help filter pollutants.

Here is the moss around the base of my tree.



Mike – The sweet chestnut in the local park which I’m following has still got plenty of leaves but they’re now various shades of yellow and  brown so are likely to drop soon.

Our thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting tree following, and if you want to see what it’s all about, and perhaps join in,  please have a look at this tree following post.

Have a good weekend, and take care!

  1. Nice to have a tree watch catch up.
    My smoke tree is now bereft of all leaves, had some spectacular colours before they all fell. Nice to see some leaves still on the sweet chestnut though l expect their days are numbered now!❄️


  2. Fascinating reports as usual from you two.
    Intriguing that the smoke tree points into the wind?
    The bare branches and golden leaves both look attractive.
    Thanks you for continuing to follow in 2022 – and I hope you will continue into 2023.
    All the best 🙂
