From what I see it looks to be plant species of hebe and hypericum that look unwell in this garden, I’m suspecting aluminium from chemtrails. Organic growers around the world state alumium as destroying a full third of yield. Its thought such chemtrail aluminium is responsible for bee decline. At night theres no moths to speak of, for the first or second year the kitchen window can be left open after dark and NOTHING flies though the window.
Heres a blog that provides sufficient reading for hours ….
All pics above are mine circa 2011 and taken down at a nearby waste heap that has (so far, permanent) shallow ponds, my wifes ashes are scattered at the outfall. Originally coal mining waste, then used as a landfill site. It was capped with pit waste and planted with mixed and conifer say 1980. I’ve introduced two dozen native north british species since at least twenty years ago and now theres a thousand common spotted orchids every June and July, likewise all my honeysuckle cuttings have taken and provide habitat for small songbirds and help for any remaining moths. Round leaved orchid also has established, say half a dozen so far, seed collected from a motorway services eighty miles away. Latest success is avens successfully established and round leaved mint from upcountry ‘surviving’ so far. The bank of cowslips this year was fabulous, likewise each years succession of umbellifers though common is always enjoyable. Yellow flag iris is abundant at the ponds, all due to me, ditto three patches I sowed and visible as ppl drive south over the bridge a mile away.
Also above is the Burnett Moth … but I haven’t seen any this year!
Also … WHERE ARE GARDEN FLOWERS ???
Increasingly ppl with scant knowledge decide to lay down gravel and block paving where really they should be growing shrubs and flowers. My garden front and back is advanced in content and variety that other gardens look the work of backward lazy people. Yet my own patch takes very little work nowadays. The problem with this increasing sterility is the move to lazier lifestyles, increasingly becoming ‘ideal’ consumers, grazing on tv and convenience food. People cannot garden if they have neither a minds eye data base of what they are looking at or what they should be aiming for, as if mere five year olds. Does anyone ask me how I do what I do …. I was going to say ‘no-one’ but its no more than two people.
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
