This picture I took in a birdpark in Walsrode Germany, they have a male and a female and they are trying to bread with them.
Have a great day.
I have a fig tree in my garden for about 10 years or so, it was planted and trained against our garage wall, in a hole we made in the pavement, it is not even a big hole and still the fig tree thrives in it and we get many ripe figs each year. And the tree grows like mad, I have to prune it several times in Summer.
I once got a small pot with blooming hyacinths and I planted it under the fig tree, but after a while it got company of a taxus which selfseeded and a euphorbia which selfseeded. And everything is thriving in that small hole so I think ; life is good under that fig tree.

Have a great day all !
As we had an extremely warm and sunny month of February everything started to grow and bloom.
THIS IS MY CORKSCREW HAZEL( corylus avellana contorta) AT THE END OF JANUARY
You can already see the small catkins here and there.
Exactly one month further (end of February) the SAME bush looked like this :
Above you can see the same tree and the catkins are already at the end of their bloom and loosing a lot of yellow pollen. Amazing don’t you think ? It never had so many catkins as it has this year.
The weather has changed a lot since last wednesday, it is a lot colder, windy and very wet but we need every drop we can get. Last Summer was the hottest and driest ever.
Have a great week all and I hope you can all see that Spring is underway.
