When landing in Beijing yesterday (yesterday?!) we saw rows and rows – armies and armies – of poplar trees everywhere. The poplar tree seems to be the tree that grows everywhere in Beijing – and they grow in “stands” so there are most impressive. Under them, very small pine trees grow, so there are large, tall poplars with sporadic little pines everywhere outside the city.
There are poplars here in Ulaan Bataar too, and they are turning yellow already. Autumn in Mongolia is in full swing. in Beijing, not at all – teeshirt weather. Here, warm jackets.
Thought you’d like a tree report!
