Spring willow planting on the croft

We have started our spring time planting down on the croft starting with over 400 willow cuttings, Salix viminalis,candida, 
nigra. There have been some great sunsets over Loch Torridon. Candida is a shrubby willow and should give us good firewood sticks in four years time.

New Planting on the Croft

 Two buzzards hunting over the Torridon crofts today,   one was very high `mewing` and soaring yesterday in the cool blue  air but strong sunny day following a frosty night.   But things warmed up a bit today and it was possible to plant up some recently bought bare rooted trees, Amelanchier `s or Juneberries\Shadbush which will grow and produce sweet black elderberry sized fruits after a show of hundreds of white petalled flowers in May. Sea Buckthorn was also planted for its vitamin rich orange berry crop, crab apple James Downie, Blackthorns.
