From this rare tree not only the fruits, but also the blossoms and leaves are used for many purposes.
Unkempt garden next door – overgrown fruit-trees
Bright side: For the songbirds this “primeval forest” offers protection from birds of prey. Rose hips bloom magnificently in the spring and are natural bird food in the winter! To the surprise of our guests these overgrown fruit-trees provide a good hiding place for roebuck and roe deer even in broad daylight! Sometimes also for a roe deer and her fawn!
I always admire this tall tree, whenever I pass it! It stands in an open garden!
In winter we use the lime blossoms to make delicious tea.
