Foolhardy Choice

Ja, jeg vet sannelig ikke helt hvilken overskrift som ville passe best: ‘Et dumdristig valg’ eller ‘Evig optimist’, men jeg synes motivet var litt artig. Det kom seg så at vi for 8-10 år siden skar ned et enormt dobbelt bjerketre som skygget for solen og dessuten påførte oss dagevis med raking av løv. Men for å være litt forutseende så lot vi en litt velvoksen stubbe stå igjen. Den har vi brukt som et ‘bord’ for sommerens blomsterprakt.
Men – så er det tilsynelatende andre som har fått samme ide? Ikke bare er det en rogn som har slått rot i denne enorme stubben, men det ser også ut til at vi skal kunne høste våre egne vill bringebær – om vi bare er tålmodige nok? Eller er naturens innfall dømt til å mislykkes?
I don’t really know what caption would be best in this case: ‘A foolhardy Choice’ or ‘Forever Optimistic’, but I liked the motive and found it a bit cherful.
It so happened that we something like 8-10 years ago cut down a massive  twin birch that not only took our sun away but also generated a lot of extra work in our garden each year.
But – looking ahead we decided to let a rather solid stem remain, which we have been using to decorate our garden with large flower arrangements through summer.
But – appearantly some more have hit onto the same idea? Not only has a young
rowan tree sunk its roots there?!  It also seems that we might be able to enjoy
our own wild raspberries? – If we are only patient enough? Or is this unexpected twist of nature doomed to failure from the start?

    I’ll go with “forever optimistic”. The tree isn’t ready to give up and intends to bring continuous life to your garden. 🙂

      He he, well – we’re talking about to different species here though? It seems the rowan taps into the old root system of the birch, but I really don’¨t know whether this will work in the long run? (Like a sapling?) However, I’ve seen it happen when moss and seeds from other plants start growing on (and into) old oak trees in the woods . . .

    Or bring a plastic bag next time you’re out walking the woods. There are wild raspberries just about everywhere?!

    I would like to have some wild raspberries in the garden. Good efforts for this little one.

    Artig! Her har dere jo et mangfold av ulike ting…til og med bringebær! Beste jeg vet 🙂

      Jada, som jeg også, skriver: Rogn og Vill-Bringebær, men opp til høyre vokser det noe annet som jeg må ta en nøyere titt på når an ledningen byr seg. Og i tillegg er hele stubben dekket av såkalt ‘kjuke’! Ser du nøye etter, så ,finner du nok kjuke i dette bildet også?
