When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Liriodendron tulipifera

Going! Gone! For once, sense got the better of me - our friend and neighbour, who is also a tree surgeon, pruning the tulip tree 🌳

Don’t worry Jennifer, he was only retrieving a branch that had been ripped off in the winds a couple of months back and removing some lower branches. It will look much better for it and hopefully be happier too 😉 @jennlamaye

@awomanonabike I don’t doubt that. But very glad other people are skilled in those areas. Not me. 😉

He’s amazing. This was the tallest tree he did but he pruned an acer, katsura, oak and beech as well. And was done by lunchtime! @jennlamaye

As promised, here are the flowers of the tulip tree - which survived the latest gales pretty unscathed 😊

They are soft enough that they can be a bit hard to spot! @columbiariver

The trees aren't that unusual. Once you start looking I'm sure you'll find one - I've seen them in the street in London - but the flowers, even though they are large, are quite hard to spot at first... 🔎🔎🔎 @rachelbrooks

Finally I have a day dry and still enough to take this branch off...and it's got buds. Oh well, try again next year!
