As the shortest day approaches, the sunshine grows cold and distant and our trees seem to be having a rest.

Trees in a churchyard

Autumn has passed its colourful peak and most of the leaves are now on the ground.

The colder weather is here and with it a dormant time of year.

Holding on

The evergreens will hold onto their glossy leaves and there’ll be bright holly berries to see.

Nature seems to shut down and is waiting for spring.

If you have trees in your garden, then it’s time to keep an eye on them ready for the next growing season.
