Black buds are typical

Black buds are typical of F.excelsior. F.angustifolia and F.ornus have brown buds, and tend not to occur in 'woodland'.

worth going back

If you go back in a couple of weeks when the weather has improved you should see the very attractive plum coloured flowers in clusters,the flowers are very small but lovely.

Re: worth going back

Good to know, many thanks. I pass the tree most days so will definitely keep an eye out for that.
