It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.
Winston Churchill

Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Larch-Winter

Larches

Larix

Larches are one of my favourites. In the winter they are a bit stark, with bare branches, and pale yellow twigs. Some people think they are dead. Look more closely. Each branch has little balls about the size and colour of peppercorns. Wait, and watch!

Larch-Summer

By the middle of Bud Wee larch needles are already half an inch long.

Early in spring you will see tiny green bits on the twigs, like bits of of pool table felt. Over the course of a couple weeks, each bud turns into a pom-pom of green needles, 20-30 of them in a cluster. When they are young they are a soft pale green.

Larch in summer

By summer, they are a thick green haze of silky soft needles.

Over the course of the summer they turn a dark green.

Larch-Autumn

Larch in autumn

Come fall the needles die, turning a vivid orange yellow. They will hold for a couple weeks this way before falling to the ground.

The native larch, often called tamarack is found only in bogs. Siberian larch, the one we carry is much more drought tolerant, and once established can be ignored.
