Hedgehog week and a story at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow… Scots Pine

Do you think these look like mini Hedgehogs?

Everything is growing and unfolding here at Clay Meadow and some of the things that we started in 2012 are coming into their own … the story of the Scots Pine unfolds…

We planted them in 2012 with the expectation that they would grow really tall and provide some screen for us – they were very expensive. However, their secondary purpose was not only to provide the amazing Forest Pine scent of Christmas pretty much all year round but also to (eventually) provide the fruits of our labours… the amazing little Pine Cones.

This year in 2017 not only are the Scots Pine tall but they are giving up their secrets and I am collecting them madly for use for our children visitors!
