Tree Following October Update

 For Tree Following this year I'm following one of the several wonderful old silver birch trees in North Merchiston Cemetery in Edinburgh. Crafty Green Boyfriend and I started walking round this cemetery (and the nearby Dalry Cemetery) every day for our #DailyExercise during the first UK lockdown last year. And we're still doing the same walk regularly, though currently I'm spending time visiting other cemeteries as I'm doing wildlife surveys there for the City of Edinburgh Cemeteries department. 

The birch tree has started to change colour as autumn progresses

and already, fallen leaves are starting to carpet the surrounding grass. 

Soon the whole tree will be yellow, the silver birch is one of my favourite autumn trees.

Silver birches are lovely trees, and the leaves changing colour give plenty of interest at this time of year. xx
