1. Looks like Acer. maybe Acer platanoides. Common name Norway maple.
2. Looks like Quercus. Maybe Quercus robur.Common name Oak.
3. Crinodendron hookerianum.
4. Looks like Fraxinus excelsior. Common name Ash.

How did I do then Greengage?

Unfair! How are we supposed to know it's Q. petrea or robur, if we can't see the leaves or the acorns? Mind you, I love the last picture. You must have a brilliant camera!

your right but if you guessed Oak I would have said correct Quercus robor and Quercus petrea do my head in, in leaf its easy or looking at fruit and in bud its almost impossible as for the camera, Jeez I thought it was the photographer you have to give me some credit, (SHHHH think i was lucky Laughing )
will find something difficult there must be something silver surfer does not know the name of.

Lichens. Oh the fun we had with ident tests on those! We ID'd them in the field, but on test day, we were handed crusty dried specimens. Thanks Dr. Arnott... Mind you, you'd have to ID them yourself as well (shudders).

Masses that I do not know.
Learning something new every day!


We are shortly moving.... fingers tightly crossed!
Leaving our 4.5 acres.
3.5 acres is a Plantaholics paradise stuffed with trees, shrubs, bulbs, ferns etc.
Created from an overgrown wilderness over 34 years... a full time job for 2 to keep it looking fab.
When we move and downsize in to an OAP flat without a garden, we will have masses of time to get out and about, explore, get out walking... new hobbies etc.
I want to go on a courses about lichens. at Kildrogan Field Studies Centre in Perthshire. Scotland.
I love lichen. So varied. So pretty.
Yet I am completely ignorant about them.
I fear that "the little grey cells" will get completely overloaded with too much info!

Greengage.. your new blog is very impressive. (I don't do Facebook!)
How about an introduction... with a bit about yourself.
A pic or 2 maybe of the author!
Cheers.
