The tree I'm following for this year's Tree Following challenge is a horse chestnut in one of the local graveyards which we have walked through almost every day since lockdown began and since it was relaxed (and now has been tightened again). A lovely tree to study and here's the latest:
The tree looked particularly fine in it's autumnal colours in October sunshine
and here is a photo of the tree from the roadside! It seems impossible to get a photo that does justice to both the tree and the church so I concentrated on the tree!
Next year's buds are already showing on the tree, the potential for new growth is always there.!
By 30 October, the tree had lost a lot of leaves but still looked magnificent with the sun shining through it
and by 5 November, almost all the leaves have fallen
though those that remain are beautiful
and today the tree is almost bare
