Wordless Wednesday


Another attempt. Damn, blew the wordless thing already.

Out with the old – the last of the Rosa rugosa hips,

and in with the new – catkins on my twsity hazel… oh, OK, my Corylus avellana ‘contorta‘:

      I’ve been out and explained to it that it is November, but it’s not listening. I have a feeling (though no photographic evidence) that it did this last year as well…

    Twsity? I love that word!

    1. kate says:

      Well, sometimes typos are more accurate than the real thing!

    I can’t get the wordless thing together either. doesn’t matter. I love signs of spring. Christina

    1. kate says:

      I’d be happier with the signs of spring if this was, say, February… I hope we don’t have a cold winter. Poor little thing!

    It’s definitely November here (wet and windy) though the Magnolia’s covered with fluffy buds.

    I’d never manage the wordless thing either 😉

    1. kate says:

      Right, I’m going out to check my magnolia tomorrow morning – I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it is doing something equally bonkers….

      (Guess gardeners just like talking!!)

    It wouldn’t be you if it was wordless!
    Some of my plants are still in flower. Or at least they were last time I saw them (Sunday)

    1. kate says:

      Hee hee.. no, I suppose it wouldn’t!

      I’ve still got some things in flower. Or, like you, they were when I last saw them….

    Sometimes the wordless thing is so difficult – I cheat with blog titles and sometimes captions on the photos. Like your catkins

    1. kate says:

      I’m determined to crack it at some point, though. The catkins are so cute – I’ve got six. Well, I haven’t; the hazel has – but you know what I mean.

  7. I gave up and did “Wordy Wednesday” posts for a while. I love hazel catkins, though it will be a while before I get any on either of my hazels – one is far too young, the other has been hacked to the ground!

    1. kate says:

      So did I (wordy Wednesdays), but I’m having another go at shutting up. Watch this space!

      (Why did you hack your hazel???)

      1. To let it concenrate on putting down roots, poor thing had been languishing in a pot for over three years!!

          Mine is languishing in a pot…. I’m blocking its ears…..
