Spruce

This Norway spruce, the common Christmas tree, is just pushing out its new spring foliage, which is a paler green than last year's needles. 


Although European, it is not strictly native to Britain, but we planted it in March 2015 to encourage the birds that like conifers, such as goldcrests and coal tits.

The tree is holding its own amongst the rosebay, along with two scots pines that we planted at the same time.
