JUST ONE MONTH LATER

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.

AUTUMN, BUT STILL IN BLOOM

It is Autumn, the leafs are getting other colors, others already fell down but it still feels like Summer. The weather is still very warm, sunny and very dry over here, very unusual for October but the days are becomming shorter every day. So I took my camera and made a few pictures of all the colors in my garden at the moment.
