Monthly updates

Three pictures per tree per month taken on (or as close as possible to) 16th - the whole thing, the tip, and a bud/leaf/flower/fruit.

This month (November):






Things changing so fast between March 16th and April 16th some extra photos on 4th April. Also welcoming Rex. There are spare second trees for each of them planted elsewhere on the site. Generally they are not doing as well as the main tree, but spare Rex has got some good autumn colour.
