Carpinus betulus (Hornbeam). Unequally toothed edge mid green leaves. A popular hedge can be seen trained and pleached. Tolerant of clay soils and polluted areas. Very useful tree even for a small garden.
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~ Eleanora Duse
