I'm following a tree



Both my trees have turned a lovely green , I had taken some photos on the 1st of may which was a good job as it was raining very hard yesterday, and struggled to get a gap in the weather, falling over on the muddy field  and getting covered in cut grass did not help !!


The tree nearest the road has all it's flowers out now, they look lovely against the bright green of the tree.



The grass has been cut in this area now but on the 1st the ground under the tree was covered in Dandelions and Daisies.


The leaves of the Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) wild flower are coming through.



My other Larch tree , which is a Japanese larch is looking splendid too.





Because the grass is not cut here the wild flowers have chance to grow.






Haven't managed to recorded any birds in the trees this month, or insects as we have not had the best of weather.

  1. The way you present a post like this makes everything clear and memorable. I suppose everyone's already asked you how you do it like this and you've told them but . . . I'd really like to know too!

  4. I've really been looking forward to your tree post so it was a lovely treat to come home to it today. It was just as good as I expected :-) The larch roses are so pretty. I'm looking forward to visiting 'my' larch now to see how it compares. I've also been getting really excited about 30 Days Wild and coming up with ideas - can't wait for the pack to arrive. x

    2. I went to see the larch trees today. They are very green now and with no flowers. I was surprised now soft the needles are. I did give them a rub but couldn't get a scent - will try again next time. x

  5. The Larch is wonderful - I enjoyed your post ... and yes didn't it rain so very heavy yesterday.

    But we need the mix of sun and showers to help make May a glorious month.

    All the best Jan

  11. Larch roses - I followed a larch in The Tree Year meme some time ago, and never learned this name! Isn't it lovely? I am most impressed by your online 'scrapbooking' presentation - so attractive! Thank you, Amanda, for your suggestion of iSpot. I use iRecord for ladybirds etc. (when you know what you are logging, LOL!). Must look at iSpot ...

  17. A lovely post and beautifully presented. I love larches, so pretty at all times of the year. You have beautiful tree. It is strange how the Cuckoo flower suddenly appears. I have lots this year which has appeared all over out of nowhere. . I love it.

  19. I really love the way you have presented your larches - beautiful photos and collages, and interesting facts and observations. I love larches, but most of them near us and in our garden have no low branches and are incredibly difficult to observe. So I shall enjoy following yours this year!

    1. Thanks Cathy, some of the other Larch trees have high branches to, they are all slightly different types of Larches. So I am too glad there are a few with low branches so I too can see the flowers.
