A walk alone this morning.

Rich not too well…tested to make sure, thankfully it must only be a throat and chest bug.
Set off down the local country lane and thought I would photo just the trees for a change.I’m always showing floral photos. They are beginning to show their framework of branches now which I love to see.

Back home the next photo is the Cercis tree.

View of trees from the front garden.If only the farmer would lower their heights.We are always inundated with the leaves.Most we bag.

Walking up the drive I noticed this Clematis is flowering again.

‘Waterfall’ Acer below.

Thank you for looking.

Oh poor OH Julia. Sounds pretty poorly. Thankfully not covid, but, still unwell with horrid symptoms. Hope he feels better soon!
Your blog is lovely, I enjoyed the scenic stroll. Lots of very colourful and attractive greenery/trees too.
Dad and I went for a little walk after lunch, not long back. Started raining again!!!
That clematis flower is a pretty pink surprise.

I love trees Julia and the walk through the avenue of them was lovely.
Couldn't you use the leaves for a mulch?
I hope Rich will be better soon and that you don't get it!

Ah,Kate and Rose,thank you for your good wishes for Rich....he seems to have perked up this afternoon.
Rose,we do use most of the leaves....they will turn into lovely mulch for next Autumn.

I hope Rich is better soon. OH has been collecting leaves from beneath 'our' chestnuts. Your local walk looks appealing; as you know, I love the trees! Someone on the estate was telling me today that their double blue clematis is flowering for the 3rd time this year!

Lovely stroll Julia. Your Cercis is a bit like mine … now turning orange. And I love the little waterfall Acer.
Good to know your OH is feeling a bit better 🙂.

That treed lane looks wonderful Julia . Lovely views from your front garden too. All looks very colourful and seasonal.
Get well wishes to your OH.

Thank you Ange,Sheila and Klahanie for your good wishes to OH...he has picked up this morning. Ange,I was just looking at a double blue Clematis but talked myself out of it.More watering!
Sheila the Cercis here tends to lose its leaves very slowly.Infact its one of the last trees to do this.
Klahanie, I remember you suggesting the small Acer was 'Waterfall '...it seems a very compact size.

Opps !!!....I liked it but forgot to post, I'm like your hubby and suffering , he has my sympathy, ironically mine started the evening of the day I had my flu jab, perfectly alright before that... Your photographs are lovely, the trees at this time of the year are so beautiful, I think they even surpass springtime when the blossom is out, like you I also like them in the winter months, a strong tree appearing through a mist can be quite magical ....

No worries Lincs...OH has a throat and chest bug...is that similar to yours?.....do take care...although mild there is a strong wind. Hope you feel better very soon.x

It started as a streaming head cold and sore throat, now has gone to my chest, no surprises there M'land as I'm asthmatic and get affected when its wet and damp anyway., I'm rattling when I breathe at the moment but admit I'm feeling a lot better than I was..xx

Nasty...if we lived nearer I could administer some physio!!

Julia. I know 3 green acers dissectums (laceleafs) . This looked to me as "Waterfall" (I have) and the other 2 are "Viridis" ( I believe that Kate has), and "Seiryu" which is upright growing. They are all often sold only as "Acers palmatum dissectum" ....laceleaf. There can be some others that I am not aware off.

Klahanie I'm going for 'Waterfall' Thank you so much for the info.

24 Oct, 2022

 

I hope your hubby will be better soon. Loved the stroll along the leafy lanes, also your Acer, Waterfall. Thanks for posting.

24 Oct, 2022

 

That's so kind of you Jose...he's improving slowly..I think it's a chest and throat bug going around. Leafy lanes are a favourite here too.

24 Oct, 2022

 

Hope he'll be better soon . Lovely tree displays

M'land above is the Paul you were asking about... Sincerest apologies Paul I could not think of your name, the other day, its an age thing, sadly comes to us all, lol...should have remembered really , we both knew you liked conifers so knew we had the right person, that must be your claim to fame..

27 Oct, 2022

 

Hello Paul....apologies for not remembering your name...we were sure we had the same person in mind.Thank you Lincs and thank you Paul for your best wishes....he is much better.

27 Oct, 2022

 

Oh dear poor old chap. OH and I have just had it too and it has been no fun at all. Enjoyed your walk very much - wonderful autumn colours!

27 Oct, 2022

 

Oh Stera I was wondering where you were....hope you are getting better....it nasty bug.

27 Oct, 2022

 

were you talking about me ? lol . Glad he is better :)

27 Oct, 2022

 

Yes Paul....thank you!

27 Oct, 2022

 

Thankyou very much Meadow, that cheered me up!. I.m up and moving but it has been unpleasant but the worst thing was I also had a fall , banged my head on the floor,and bruised the base of my spine as well as the chest infection, so lots of fun was had by all.
And I just promised to find out if Bamboo is still around and i can 't for the life of me remember who was asking....Old age is not for wimps. I will win in the end, see if I don't....

27 Oct, 2022

 

Oh Stera what a time you've been through. The chest infection is one thing but to have a fall on top of it!...do take it easy ...I hope you are on the road to recovery.

28 Oct, 2022

 

Sorry to hear of your run of misfortune, Stera. Hang on in there & I wish you a speedy recovery.
