I'm Following a Tree | June 2015

Here's the Silver Birch at the start of June ... standing in the long grass left by a creative grass cutter


It's covered in female catkins - the ones that will develop the seed.


Dappled sunlight on the leaves ...

... with plenty of new leaves still to reach maturity.

Peeling bark, and in these photos you can also see the darker, younger branches



 Linking with Laura at Loose and Leafy.

  1. I do love silver birches, I have a really young one that isn't silver yet, hopefully it will turn soon,

  8. The peeling bark makes for great photos! I have a weeping birch in the yard, but the bark doesn't peel nearly as much ... only in small strips.

  12. Beautiful tree, especially the peeling bark.
    And I had never noticed before that the new twigs were darker.
    Nice bit of mowing, too...
    All the best :)

  13. It's such a pretty tree - the peeling bark, the catkins, the leaves.
    Apologies for the late visit. I've been coming and going from home a lot recently and am behind with things in consequence.
