Happy Birthday in National Tree Week

1st December was Mum’s (aka VivinFrance’s) birthday and this week is also National Tree Week. In honour of both events we paid a visit to Viv’s Wood on Sunday to plant a Rowan (aka Mountain Ash) tree that we rescued from an inappropriate location in our garden. It has been in a pot for a while and it was time it was planted out. To protect it from deer grazing we have surrounded it with a natural barrier of willow and birch thinnings from elsewhere in the wood.

A couple of months ago Duncan dug a small pond to add a bit of variety of habitats.

  2. so lovely to see that you are continuing to care for the Viv’s wood but sorry about your MIL. We will hopefully get up there next year when we are able. I am still cycling and in fact this year am already over 6000 miles thanks to my e-bike.
