Talk about “seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness” ! We’ve had a couple of right ol’ rawky mornings here in London. Not the kind of weather we tend to experience in the capital anymore, when visual details get smudged out. The air had thickened with moisture, causing droplets to spangle cobwebs.
So I seized the opportunity to go take some atmospheric photos. Annoyingly, my camera battery ran out before too long, so my session was cut short – a rooky error!
Last month, I missed the deadline for tree following with Loose and Leafy. Well, not this time!
From a distance, the tree I am ‘following’ looks like it is still green in canopy but a closer inspection shows another hue is slowly taking hold.. Not as fierce an autumn colour as other Acers such as the Japanese Maples, which flame up in oranges and crimsons, Sycamore takes on butter tones.
It will be interesting to see how long this tree takes to shed all its leaves – Cherries are very quick, I’ve noticed, whereas London Plane trees can take up to three months to dump their foliage. Think about it.. that’s quarter of a year!!
Until next time, Tree Followers….
