Frans Fontaine Hornbeam Leaves In Winter - December 2019
Back in the end of November, I posted a few photos of our columnar Hornbeam trees retaining all their dead leaves this year. For garden diary purposes, I also wanted to post a closeup photo of the leaves as they stay on the tree. You can see that they've turned from green to brown, but have some green staying in the background and the edges of the leaves gaining some jagged, dried-out edges. I'll try to revisit these trees and the leaves later this Winter to see if I can spot more changes as they continue their slip into dormancy.
