|Tree at the end of a day. I think it's an Ash.|
Time (in the way of flowers and leaves) will tell.

Well, folks. Didn't we do well? Aren't we all inspired by the number of Tree Followers this year? Have you noticed how infectious the enthusiasm has been? And what about the quality of Tree Following posts? Aren't they good?
The March Link Box is now closing. It will remain as a route to Tree Following posts but won't accept any more URLs.
A new one will be opening on 7th April as near to 7am (UK time) as I can make it. This too will be open for 7 days so there's plenty of time in which to get to know our trees before we meet again as a virtual group and compare notes.
About dates . . . Some people have chosen to look at their tree on 7th of every month - a snapshot of change. But for most of us . . . we will be watching to see what happens as it happens. Many, if not most, participants live in regions where spring is 'doing things' to our trees just now. There will be new leaves and blossom.You may want to post about your tree more than once. If birds are building a nest in it - you'll probably want to share this with your readers straight away. Great! When it comes to the 7th April perhaps you will be able to give a link leading to an index of all your observations?; a view of the month passing. Don't feel you have to do more than you want. But don't feel limited either!
A couple of practical points.
|One of the debates on the Tree Following posts has been over the impact of ivy on trees.|
