Late days of March show us to see the rebirth of nature in Değirmendere basin from Trabzon to Zigana Mountains. Most blooming flowers are surely Primulas. As woody taxa, Salix, Cornus, Daphne etc. are attractives. We are waiting ground layers in April. #plantingdesign #turkeyvegetation #ponticalps #ktulandscape

On a green roof they might look a little like this I guess, the same Astragalus (I think) mixed with Acantholimon in high altitude lightly grazed Turkish steppe #shefplanting #landscapearchitecture #ponticalps

Time for climbing ice is near! Here you see me in the first ascent of the Keci icefall (WI4 30m) in Rize, Çat valley. We hope it gets frozen again this season. Photograph: Serdar Topaloglu Buz tırmanış vakti yaklaşıyor! Bu imajda Rize'nin Çat vadisindeki Keçi donmuş şelalesinin (WI4 30m) ilk çıkışını yapıyorum. Bu sezon tekrar donmasını umuyoruz!

Life on the stone piles, more steppe like species, the yellow hypericum scabrum, Dracocephalum etc . The same strategy of providing these stony substrates to tilt the ecological processes also works in designed landscapes, cushiony legumes #ponticalps #landscapearchitecture #shefplanting #meadow

Due to Mass migration to the cities, #ponticalps #landscapearchitecture #shefplanting #meadow #in Turkey there are many meadows that are no longer being cut for hay, and which revert to scrub and woodland. These stone edge mounds are really interesting, they provide a very low nutrient, freely drained substrate which allow species that are intolerant of the increasing competition in the meadow in the absence of cutting. The Papaver orientale is very tolerant of competition , but is there too

Mercifully for You and me, we have done NE Turkey woodland edges. Hallelujah. Now onto Turkish meadows, most of which will be hay meadows, i.e. they are cut in summer to provide winter feed for cows. This cutting re-orders the species, favouring shorter species rather than tall leafy stem species like Campanula lactiflora, and very high species diversity. The soils in these meadows are stony and infertile, u can see the plies of sones taken off the surface over the centuries and used to form walls around the fields. There is a lot of white Silene in the image, but also lots of hemiparsites and legumes, again both cues to soils low in nitrogen, often these meadows are periodically ploughed up for potatoes etc once the legumes or animal manuring build up nitrogen sufficiently. #ponticalps #landscapearchitecture #shefplanting #meadow

These semi shaded edges support lilies, this Lilium ciliatum. #ponticalps #landscapearchitecture #shefplanting
