I have to admit that my Lunch Tree – what I thought was an European Beech – is really a Linden tree (Large-leaved Linden or Lime – Tilia platyphyllos – Sommerlinde). End of March I found a fruit with a pretty hard to crush nutlet and my co-workers said that this is the fruit of a Linden tree…
Mid February I saw a Green Woodpecker sitting in the branches. Bad photo but still – can you see it?
End of March the weather was very nice but my tree was still all naked, right in the middle with a Tower of the historic defensive wall and the Alps behind it. On the right is Mount Pilatus.
And here is my Linden(!) tree. Four days after this photo was taken (April 7th) the leaves were out to the top.
