Every year I bring in twigs of lime / lind (Tilia), birch / bjørk (Betula), rowan / rogn (Sorbus), hawthorn (Crataegus), currants (Ribes) etc. and put them in a jar filled with water for early salad leaves! All have edible leaves and many say that lime is the best of them all! They were part of today’s salad.
Here’s a series of pictures of them emerging in my living room!
Not my son Robin, but Erithacus rubecula returned this week. European robins (rødstrupe) are now classified with the flycatchers. A joy to hear their bittersweet song!
Great spotted woodpecker (flaggspett) playing a little drum solo in the garden this morning!
