Some of you already know I am not a fan of Autumn and Winter as they just last too long for me. Short grey days, cold, misty, slippery roads…..
This morning I took a picture of an oak tree in my garden, mind you, it was a sunny day so I thought I’d take a few pics.
This is a 40 year old European oak, its leafs are smaller and less colourful in Autumn than those of the American oak. I haven’t got a clue how tall it is but it it huge.
This is our neighbours birch tree.
Have a great weekend all !

MUSHROOM ON A TREE
So sorry I haven’t been on WP lately but we are in the middle of renovations here and it is a big mess and a LOT of hard work. A few more weeks and then I hope life will be back to “normal”.
I love tree’s with an unusual bark. When we were visiting a tropical greenhouse I found a tree called CEIBA INSIGNIS also known as “bottle tree”. It was love at first sight !
