Gardening on a small plot with an oak tree in one corner and trying to encourage more wildlife. Love visiting gardens and buying plants too!

Thanks everyone, I always love it when the leaves come out, though I'll be cursing it in Autumn when they all come down! @debs69 @juliesgarden @anges @vegandmore

Having seen the weather forecast for the weekend don't think there will be many leaves left on it by Monday!!!

#foliagefriday The oak tree in my garden with the sun behind it this morning. Think I've raked up two thirds of the leaves and so another third to go! Enjoy your day 🍂🍂🍂

Whereabouts are you Ann? This tree is south facing so turns quite quickly, there's one on green space at the front of us that's north facing and it's still green. Not sure I could cope with them all coming down in one week! @anl

We are Nottingham on the river Trent so not such extreme weather and the garden is East facing the Oak only ever seems to be out of leaf from mid December to beginning of April if the spring is warm 😊The Ash is a lot later but it seems that in the last 50 years the Oak has only been beaten a few times according to Nature’s Calendar website@lilybee

You're lucky to have an Ash too Ann, that's the one that's suffering dieback at the moment isn't it. @anl

That’s a big tree- you must have massive garden

I would say we had a relatively small garden with a massive tree in! It's got a TPO on it so we have to work with it. Now that it's got leaves on, it blocks the sun from a large part of the garden from around 10 till gone 2. @sharonhayden

Looking lovely, Sue! Our neighbour’s oak tree still has loads of leaves on it, most of which will end up in our garden 😢🍃😢🍃😢🍃

I'm very good, I do share some of our leaves with my neighbour 😀😀, although it does feel like I've raked more than normal this year so maybe they've all fallen our side! @jacaranda
