When I started to plant the trees in my Grove two years ago I was not sure whether I would soon have to move house or not. I do have to move but it’s all planted and will just take time to grow. I hope it will be left in peace to do so. I wont see it but I know the apple and olive are worth anyone keeping so I hope they do. Woe betide anyone who kills the Hawthorn.
The only tree I planned to plant but hadn’t yet was a Rowan. By chance one came to me about three months ago. It’s a baby so I put it in a pot and now it’s on the window ledge in my new home. I will find it a safe spot outdoors later on.
The hawthorn I planted is not in the photos (out of respect for its privacy? or because it’s young and hidden? I don’t know – I just didn’t take a picture)
