Garden Walk
of Bark & Limbs in Winter

Harry Lawder's Walking Stick


Contorted Hazel

Contorted Hazel, aka Harry Lauder's Walking Stick,
is famed for its curly branches which are most visible in winter,
as in this December portrait of some upper limbs.
It is further famed for its catkins
that turn into golden chains toward the end of winter.

Contorted Hazel

In this March portrait, the winter catkin-flowers
have brought this little tree to its height of decorativeness.
The evergreen leaves that are intruding
into the photograph are from the Blue Potato Vine.
