I've been observing several trees over the last few years, following their progress through the seasons. I'm not a scientist. For most of the time I don't even know what I'm looking at. But an affection grows, an awareness of small things - the presence of lichen, the sudden absence of familiar twigs and branches.
If you would like to keep in touch with other 'Tree Followers' through Loose and Leafy this is the way to do it . . .
First, let me know you are following a tree.
Then, every time you post about it, leave a note to say so (with a link) in the comments here.
I'll then endeavour to mention it in my next post. (I generally aim to post once a week.)
This is a new and simplified arrangement and, because some people choose a tree for a year then either stop or choose a new one, I'm re-doing the list - that's why it's vanished. (This has to be done ever so often to stop it getting out of date.) If you are following a tree, say here . . . even if you have several times before!
And if you'd like the tree motif on your blog to show you're taking part - please feel free to do so.
