Its scarey when you look at it, from the end of Oct each year right up to Mid April, our beloved deciduous Trees, be they Oak, Ash,Lime or Chestnuts , bare no leaves at all. I think as I have got older I have notice it more, but it is slightly depressing. Christmas comes in after the first 6 weeks to destract us, but when we finish with New Year and the kids are back at school, we have another 14 — 16 weeks where we see no tree growth, little grass growth and that is not ood for the soul.
As I write, we are in the grip of Winter still, with an unseasonal Artic blast, but it won’t last…warmer days are coming. First will be the Cherry blossom, then the Chestnuts unleashing their huge foliage and flowers almost overnight. Then we will be happier right?
