Wordsworth saw a “host of golden daffodils”
I haven’t seen that …
have you noticed the buds on the trees where you live ….
here in Oxfordshire it is a delight to see the Weeping Willow,
a green cascade down to the river ….
the Elder, in our garden has started to leaf ….
and the blossom on the Blackthorn on the footpath –
beauty in scrub land …
but I don’t know how much you know about the Laurel ….
there is of course the Bay Laurel …
“The Laurus Nobilis belongs to the Lauraceae family.
The Bay Laurel is an evergreen tree typically found in the mediterranean
and produces the bay leaf which is used so commonly in Mediterranean cooking”
(best to remove the hearts before using in cooking!)
then there is …
The Portuguese Laurel
I S ….. exciting!……
here in Oxfordshire there is a very rare kind of Laurel,
it is only in very isolated pockets of Oxfordshire ….
here it is in it’s Spring Time flowering ….
Ha Ha! how pretty!
I have had a count up of my hexies,
to date, sewn up into rows,
I have 1100
I am amazed, how did I get so many!
Well, I suppose just one at a time :0)
I guess Bella would prefer a Laurel Ball Tree … :0)
or one of these ….
it’s a Cannon-ball tree that I saw in South Africa!
thanks for stopping by ….
from Bella and me ….
hope to see you again soon :0)
