The still old oak at Branton
Still an oak.
Still not moving.
My old oak – still there…still old:
Bird on a wire above you!
Got to keep reminding myself to keep looking up and keep looking down when I’m out and about. Of course, with the easing out of lockdown, we’re now able to get out and about a lot more, and more than once a day. Feels good if you can take advantage of this, doesn’t it? So, that means more opportunities to look.
Invasive rhododendron ponticum
It has such beautiful, large trusses of purple flowers showing in May-June each year, that it’s near impossible to miss this striking shrub. Rhododendron is a favourite in gardens throughout the UK, as it’s a relatively easy plant to grow, it’s an evergreen, is fairly low maintenance and makes great hedges. It can be bought in most garden centres.
