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.
