|Beech tree still holding on to leaves|
Well, here is the beech and I don't think it lost even one leaf. I went up to it to see if the slightest touch would send them dropping. Not a chance! I pulled and tugged and...well, you'd think they were cemented on.
The star magnolias were blooming and this must be the earliest I have ever seen them out.
Even the Lilac tree was budding up. I'm always astonished how similar the leaves of the tree lilac are to the shrub lilac.
Tom will not be happy when I tell him I found his white pine all dried up and dead. Why it would die all of a sudden, is anyone's guess. It's not like it was a particularly harsh winter, but perhaps that was the problem. They may do better in cold-cold weather than they do in mild winters with little rain. That may be it.
From a distance Tommy's arboretum isn't much to look at yet, but soon...
Hey, the Bradford pears are budding up and soon will be a cloud of fluffy white blossoms.
This is a cork screw willow tree I grew from a broken branch from the big one I have by the pond. I'll have to tell you about that sometime...unless I already have. I'll have to check.
I liked this French pussy willow against the sky. So good to see blue again!
Well, that was my tour of the tree field....some of it...for now. It'll get better as the season progresses.
