Tree Following with Lucy: A New Year Dawns
|With a dramatic start and a stately tree in the middle, who could have foretold 2014's dramatic ending?|
Mr and Mrs pigeon have moved to another tree along the hedgerow at the side of the house to continue their canoodling and my tree's stump currently forms the favoured spot for a song thrush to sing the day's darkness. It's a pleasure to hear its bubbling calls and whistles ringing out at the end of the day.
Thanks to those of you who commented last month with some reassurance the stump will most probably regenerate. Until that happens or the rot visibly sets in, I'll be calling time on my tree following posts. I feel I've invested too much in this particular tree to follow another one for 2015.
In the meantime, I have a shady-no-more-border project to plan and plant up :)
Have a look at Loose and Leafy to see how the other Tree Followers are faring this month.
