Tree Following September Update

 For Tree Following this year, I've chosen a magnificent old cherry tree in North Merchiston Cemetery in Edinburgh. Crafty Green Boyfriend and I started walking round this cemetery every day for our #DailyExercise during the first UK lockdown last year. And we're still doing the same walk regularly, though not quite as often. 

Here are a couple of views of the cherry tree from the middle of August 

The leaves are starting to turn already, and some have even fallen 

Later in August, we noticed these small fungi growing near the tree

in fact, they are growing all round the tree, in a classic 'fairy ring' arrangement, which is lovely to see.

This looks like a very beautiful large old cherry tree. The fairy ring is fun to see.

Leaf drop looks like being a rather drawn out affair this year due to weather extremes.
It's always worth looking at the ground around trees as your fairy ring shows. xx

That's an elegant white mushroom, especially against the rich green grass. Nice shot.

Still very green - I expect the odd leaves have fallen because they don't know what season it is - it has been an odd year weather-wise.
Love the fungus...
