Cornus Capitata


At the bottom of the garden we have a small tree – “cornus capitata“.

Last year it looked very miserable,

So when we re-did that area of the garden – we moved it,

Into a well nourished bed.

This year, it has produced delightful flowers,

(Which are really bracts)

What a treat.

    I love the simplicity of this. After all the double this, varigated that, it is lovely to see nature at it’s most simple and spectacular.

  4. Sheila, Thank you – I have to say I am really pleased. the tree, while small for a cornus is about 10 foot tall, so it has done well ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anna, thanks for the visit – I think it was all the well rotted muck that we put in the planting hole that did the trick ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dobby – You are right – it does have a perfect simplicity, also I am a sucker for green flowers of any kind.
