Harry Lauder's Walking Stick

Corylus avellana 'Contorta'

We bought this unusual plant last summer, basically on a whim. We had gone to a nursery to get other plants for our newly reconfigured flower garden. But, when we saw the Harry Lauder's Walking Stick (what a great name!), we couldn't resist.

One of the consistent comments we heard about the plant was that it looks good in all seasons, including winter. And, since we do have winter in NH....It does look good in the snow, doesn't it?

She's Quick

Daphne has gotten very mobile over the past few months. The camera can't even keep up!
She wants to get to that tree and eat some ornaments.

A CHristmas Story

"Randy, how do the little piggies eat? Show us how the piggies eat. Oink Oink Oink"
This is one of Max's favorite scenes.

Playing in the snow

Max loves nothing more than trying to catch snow flakes on his tongue. He was so excited when the skies opened up and dropped some beautiful light and fluffy flakes on us. Snow in NH is so much more fun than snow in NYC.
