Well done Gardengirl..
I nearly gave up on that one. I can set my mind at peace now.
You can grow your own crude oil from it.
It might take a few million years though.
Looks like you might have mildew on the bud leaf just below the flower. This could be the cause.
I have to agree with you fidgetbones. From what i have read its better left to professional on older trees.
Thought i would post a pic of Oak leaf blister as the ones on the site above are not what i recognise it as.
Wiki should help you out with that.
I will take a guess at Smooth Oxeye Heliopsis Helianthoides. Or False sunflower.
Covering the beds will only delay the weeds growing Fritzy1 Have you thought about soil solarization.
Sounds like Oak leaf blister (on the Oak) But it normally occur on new leaf in spring. It is a fungus disease and does not pose a threat to the tree health but can mar the tree's appearance. The spores may carry over to next years buds so a spray (before they bud in spring) may be needed to stop it.
Difficult to tell as i too can't enlarge it. From what i can see, it looks like a young, spindley Hydrangea Bush. Can you get a photo of the buds close up?
Pleated Inkcap. Coprinus plicatilis
What size is it and can you split one so we can see the seeds please.
