This morning as we walked to school the ground was littered with green - yes, green - leaves. We have enjoyed kicking up the brown and orange leaves from the horse chestnut trees (almost as much as collecting all the conkers a few weeks earlier) but today was a sudden blanket of green.
It looks as if one tree dropped all its leaves - just like that. I think it is an ash (they look something like this), but I'm rather dredging that up from primary school field trips. If the ash loses its leaves before the oak does that mean we're in for a wet winter?
