Tree following, its beginning to turn September 07, 2014 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps or Episode 7 I am now seven episodes and therefore seven months into following my quince tree and now I can that it is starting to turn. Last month saw spurts of growth and this spurs have reached as far as they will this year I think. Meanwhile the older leaves are looking, well, older Something has been having a nibble and tunnel around in this one. The first signs of leaf turn are happening, just gently at the moment. But I expect it to speed up soon. It is fascinating watching the tree change through the seasons. I wonder how many leaves will be left next month? To see more trees being followed look here. A huge thanks to Lucy for hosting this meme.

I don't think I've seen a plant / tree that appears to have suffered much from this - or can they be really bad for the tree's health?ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyamanda peters8 September 2014 at 14:41It's great watching the smallest changes in our trees....Amanda xReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJane Scunthorpe8 September 2014 at 20:46Oh dear, autumn is just around the corner now, so I guess your next photos in October will look very different!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplychloris10 September 2014 at 22:14I thought like you that all my quincelets had dropped off but now I find to my delight that there are 2 nice quinces looking plump and healthy. Next year I expect you will have some too.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJanet/Plantaliscious12 September 2014 at 07:27Autumn seems to be coming early this year, thanks, no doubt, to the dry summer. Your quince leaves look terribly grown up, all of a sudden. Maybe next year will be the Year of the Quince...ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment All comments are moderated.
