When I began this alphabetical countdown, I thought I might struggle with some of the letters but Q was easy: Quercus, the Latin for Oak tree. The mighty Oak features often in this blog: its leaves for their autumn colours, for the galls they support, for the insect larvae they feed, for the birds that nest in the Oak’s branches, for the fungi that grow beneath this amazing tree … and so much more. This year, amongst other topics, we’ve had Oak leaf burst; a new gall I was lucky enough to find; and some mothy goodness. I’m sure the Oak will provide further wonders in the future.
