The autumn sun is shining and although the garden is looking a bit dishevelled, there are some glorious colours still shining ...

Looking out of the kitchen window I spotted some Naked Boys in my garden - popped out there with the camera

From 24 degrees on Sunday to the first snow today!

Brrrrrrrr!  Courgettes still fruiting here ... just

What type of tree is this?

Agree - Corylus avellana 'Contorta' the Corkscrew Hazel.  Most attractive in the winter and spring when it loses its leaves and grows catkins. 

Watch out for and remove suckering growth from below the graft - these have straight stems and will overtake the contorted growth which is much loved by flower arrangers.

I'd have thought that they're just beginning to die back for the winter - they're deciduous.  I'd plant them and not worry.
