My obsession with the hazel trees continues….
I’ve been working from home today and, when the virus check slowed the computer down to the extent I could’ve scroll down any of the documents I was using, I decided it was time to top up the Green Johanna a bit more.
The hazel tree next to the bin is a tad to close for me to work without knocking it. The upshot if this was that one of the buds on the tree got damaged. Unfortunately, the camera on my phone doesn’t do close-ups too well but perhaps you see next year, when a branch fails to develop in one spot.
In the long run, I will probably reposition the bin. Right now, though, it isn’t possible because of all the mint and the long-suffering blueberry bush. The mint is slowly being cut down and removed. The blueberry bush, on the other hand, will probably move to a different location, not least because I would like to see its autumnal colour.
The hugelbed I made for it has sunk considerably but the pine branches are still sticking out of the ground. I dare say under the soil more decomposition will have taken place, especially with all the rain this autumn. So, perhaps next year will be the year?
