South facing border Church View Garden

Today has been warm and sunny and follows on from several weeks without rain. Lots of insects were feeding in the garden including several butterflies four Holly Blue, three Orange -tip, Peacock and Speckled Wood.  The insects particularly liked the Ground-ivy.  Spanish Bluebell, Red Campion and Greater Stitchwort.  Lots of tulips are coming out in the heat.                                                                                                                                                           The Easter Weekend remained warm and the garden continued to have a lot of insects in it, especially on the South West facing bank.  It was impossible to photograph all the insects but below are a few.

Beautiful Cherry Tree on the Park

This beautiful Cherry tree had literally a stump no bigger than a fist for its roots when it was delivered,  so just to give it a chance we staked it firmly and gave it two cans of water every week, amazing! The tree was supposed to be Prunus avium ‘Plena’ but it isn’t.
