When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Corylus avellana

This is a hazel. If you look closely at the left hand picture you will see that the two branches have grown together. This is a natural phenomenon called #inosculation or self-grafting. What amazed me though is you can see that the left hand branch has some new leaves coming but, look down, and the branch is dead. So dead it has snapped 😃 #isntnaturewonderful 👏👏👏
