Conk Watch 2012 - May

The undersides of the conks are mostly covered with new fungal growth, covering up last year's moldy, fungal growth (if you know what I mean).  I just took the one picture this time, since the overall sizes of the conks haven't really changed, and there are no new ones.

The Basswood tree that these conks grow on is still holding on a bit.  It had about five leaves on two branches.  And it's sending up the sucker (pictured below).  It might be fun to follow the growth and development of this sucker too (Sucker Watch?).
