If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll remember that, in previous years, I’ve been something of a follower myself – a tree follower, that is. Last year I followed Mono, an enormous maple tree (Acer pictum ssp. Mono) in Cardiff’s Bute Park. (You can read my first blog about the tree here and I posted updates each month during 2018.) Well, during a recent visit to Bute Park, I made a point of visiting Mono to check how it was doing – pretty well, I reckon!
