Garden Tuesday: Trees

Well, it's been a pretty warm October, and surprisingly few of our trees have turned colors.  I was helping Mark identify trees for a leaf-gathering project he had to do for Biology, and took some pictures of our trees while he was at it.  Hey, someone had to point out 10 species of tree, and that boy is pretty oblivious!

Anyway, enjoy many species of tree, located right here in my little corner of the world.

Apple tree:

 White Mulberry:
 White Ash and Green Ash:
 Weeping Cherry (foreground), maple peeking above it:
 Dogwood:
 Flowering Plum:
 Maples and whatnot:
 Black Walnut, way up there:
 Hickory:
That's it!  Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

We love trees and you have a great assortment. Don't think we;ll get much color this year. We're having lots of storms and the leaves are just dropping.

Oh, I like the whatnots. We have a huge variety of whatnots up here.

I can rattle off a lot of flower names but when it comes to trees, I'm oblivious myself. Thanks for the lesson Marjie...Personally, I wish I knew the name of every flower, tree and bug!!!

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

Dear Marjie, I really don't know the names of flowers or trees; except of course the rose or such. These trees do look beautiful. Blessings, Catherine

Great project for a young one to learn about the trees.

Lots of beautiful trees in your yard Marjie. I love the White Mulberry.

Only oaks and maples and some kind of dogwoods here but they're Norwegian Maples if that means anything. Love your variety and love that you know their names.

Thanks for stopping by and asking after Doc-- most thoughtful of you. He is not doing well, unfortunately and fell again. I take it one day at a time.

The trees are lovely-- nature is beautiful this time of year.. all the colors. wow.

We had a lackluster fall last year, and seem to be on par for a repeat. Boo!
