Spindle

Sunday, December 6th 2020

Over the past 28 years, hundreds of native trees have been planted at Foxglove. Close to path edges you will find several Spindle trees. This small tree is most striking in the autumn when its narrow, oval leaves turn reddish-orange and clusters of bright pink-and-orange berries hang from its twigs. These berries provide food for all kinds of wildlife. This picture was taken on the Red Route (close to where Edward the Elf was last seen).

It isn't just Edward the Elf who has a habit of moving about when people aren't looking; four of the Hebridean sheep had a jolly out on the training area last week!

They are back where they should be now and the gate that they went under has been modified to prevent them from escaping again!
