    • That was taken at around 4.30p.m just before the sun dipped behind the abbey, its down to 15c today and overcast but more sun due all day Friday, I just hope there will be no harsh winter payback!

    • I will Susie, I’m not looking forward to the dark nights and winter temperatures. We have a lot of drizzly rain right now but its helping to settle in everything planted and moved yesterday, more sun due on Friday.

  1. Hi Julie, that’s a great shot! The autumn leaves on that tree are spectacular. I’ve visited Woburn a couple of times, you’re lucky to be living close by. Loved your photo from the south west coast path too.

  2. Julie: I keep hearing that the blooms on these tulip trees are lovely. But I’ve never seen a single bloom. I love the leaf shape, and I’ve seen the trees in various places. But never blooms. Have you?

    • Hi Cynthia, I took some photos that day of the spent flower heads on this tree, I have read they flower May June time but regretfully cannot recall seeing them, I am going to make a point of looking for them next year as at Woburn they have three of these trees.
