It’s not too bad Jacqueline, I don’t think it was very happy when I planted it in the ground and the hot sun really didn’t help, but it did grow some new leaves, so hopefully next year it’ll be happier, oh and the leaves that are still on it haven’t turned yet.
9 Oct 2019 • I wish I could take better photos of this fantastic tree. It lights up the inside of the house even on days like today when there was no sun, which also meant there was no smell of burnt toffee #katsura ☁️🍂
9 Oct 18 • We’ve been away less than 3 weeks but #autumn seems to have passed while we were away - at least as far as the #cercidiphyllum is concerned. Though the scent of burnt toffee is still lingering 🍂
D’you know, I’d never actually heard of Katsura trees until a couple of weeks ago as one is in a new for 2019 NGS garden that I was reviewing. And now here there’s one in your garden! Learning all the time huh! Sounds like you’ve had a great trip...coming home is always good too! X x x
Isn’t it funny how that happens sometimes Claudia! It’s a wonderful tree. Ours was here when we moved in and is probably about 28 years old. We have always called it the burnt toffee tree because of the wonderful scent from the dead leaves 🍂🍂 @clipperty
Haha! Yes, though it’s just about over in my garden. We often get a hint of it in the spring too as the new leaves sometimes get caught by a late frost, though it doesn’t seem to do the tree any harm 🍃 @clipperty
