Hebe Pink Elephant, showing its best colours with its new growth in spring. the weather yesterday was absaloutly stunning, sunny, warm and calm. I even opened up the door of the greenhouse. its the opposite today of course! horizontal rain!!
Corylus Avelana Contorta, this little shrub is starting to put on some size now, it was wee for years. it spends the winter being entertaining with its twisty wood, and spring the lovely catkins. then in the summer it fades into the background. a very useful shrub/tree.
I am a big fan of the lifestyle of Permaculture and completed an introdutory course last year with Ed Tyler, one of Scotlands most active and knowlegable permaculture teachers, he has just started his own blog called Local Futures and its well worth a visit.
