Great Oaks …from Little Acorns Grow
Last Spring (2016) we found a little Oak tree growing out of our gravel path…it couldn’t stay there so we dug it up. The roots were short and still attached to the original Acorn. We potted it up and watered it during the year and it seemed to flourish. Winter came and the small leaves dried and fell. The twig that was left look all but dead until this springs sunshine and warmth stimulated into action….a new Oak Tree in the making.
The colours of late spring and early summer are now starting to bring high spots of very individual colours and flower heads across the garden…no massed displays as yet, just beacons of summers glory to come….even the Bees are busy
Nor was the Robin about to leave the day un-sung
There are two young Robins hiding in the undergrowth….so I guess he is just singing with pride and joy…
