It’s the week to sign in the Lucy’s Tree Following project.
The Chestnut Trees are developing so very quickly now.
There is a light green haze of leaves around them and some of the more advanced trees have a flower here and there.
The flower spikes are lengthening and the individual florets becoming more spaced out.
Florets coming into bloom from the base up.
I made one drawing of a more developed twig with a flower spike still in bud.
My flagging model after a couple of hours
The pencil drawing A3
And a couple of conkers I rescued from the verge mowing.
A loose sketch of the two sprouting conkers.
They only have long tap roots so far. They seem to grow upside down.
To my great surprise the sad looking old black conkers that I optimistically planted in a pot outside are sprouting.
A new leaf is about the emerge. Spring!
