Oak or Ash ?


The Ash in the Meadow

Spring is well underway.  Trees are starting to show their green leaf growth.  Of course it would be too easy for all trees to leaf at once.  The Chestnut leads the way, Willows are Weeping and Silver Birch buds have burst.

But both the Ash and the Oak have yet to join the party…… so that leaves us, with a leafy conundrum, well at least as far as the old country rhyme goes..

Oak before the Ash

We are in for a Splash

Ash before the Oak

And we are in for a Soak

At this moment I cannot predict the winner.

But I guess it doesn’t really matter which wins the race… we will get some rain.  Its just a question of a little or a lot!

Whatever the weather

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
