Bald Cypress - September Flush of Growth - September 2021
It seems that September is when we get a big flush of growth on our front yard Bald Cypress tree. This year is the second year in a row when I've been able to catch (and document) the new, happy feather-like needles that show up in a big, late-Summer blow-up. Here's last year's post on the same subject. The last time I posted a photo was from July when this tree had new Summer-time growth.
Here - below - is a look at the big, feathery "pom-poms" of growth that are currently sitting on a bunch of the limbs and branches. I used "pom-poms" because they are sort of little balls of growth on the edges that remind me of pom-poms.
And, here below, is a look at the full tree. It has really grown big and strong this season and comes in close to eight or nine feet tall by my eyeball.
