|Turkey Oak - Feb. 16th 2014|
This slow beginning is good. It gives us time to think about our trees, how much attention we will give them. Will it be an occasional photograph? An in depth focus on the insects which live on them through the year? The development of their fruit from blossom to drop? (Maybe there will be recipes?)
It also gives us time to iron out some wrinkles.
One of the trials of blogging is that the anti-spam settings on Loose and Leafy make it difficult for some to leave comments.

So - this post is to say taking part in Tree Following through Loose and Leafy does not depend on you being able to leave comments.
To let me know you are taking part, you can leave a comment - but you can also email me at
and I'll add you to the list.
When the linky box goes up for posts on 7th March it will suggest you leave a comment. This is because it's a free box and that's part of the text included. Ignore it. If the box accepts the URL to your tree following post - well, you're away. We'll be able to find you and read about your tree - and that's what matters.
What if you don't have a blog but would like to take part? That's fine. Email me and, if we can, we'll make space on Loose and Leafy for a photograph of your tree and a paragraph about it every so often.
You might want to follow a tree by posting photos on Twitter. Twitter isn't perfect for pictures but there's no reason why we shouldn't have a list of Tree Tweeters along with the list of Tree Following bloggers.
|The pictures on this page are all of a Turkey Oak, taken on 16th February 2014.|
This is one of the plants beneath it - taken on the same day.

And Gill at On the Edge Gardening has chosen a Medlar tree.
Any questions, any suggestions - ask them, make them!
(Incidentally, for those of you new to Loose and Leafy - it's not soley about trees but all sorts of hedgerow plants. Sometimes we look at urban wild plants too - here's the most recent urban plant post - Out on the Town.)
And remember - first Linky Box for full scale Tree Following start up this year will be - 7th March 2014.
