So whilst the year advances, my over-the road-oak continues its sentry duty high above the Duver.
But secondly, look at these leaf spots:
Should I worry? Well I don’t think so. I’ve spent some time looking online at all the nasty things that can attack oak leaves (rust, canker, downy mildew etc) but eventually came across this comment on Oak Leaf Gardening:
“Finally, spots appearing in late summer or autumn could just be due to the natural process of the leaf dying prior to the dormant winter period.”
So I think I’ll calm down, and sit and enjoy the canopy while it’s still here.
With many thanks again to Lucy at Loose and Leafy for hosting this ‘Follow a tree’ meme.
