Unhappy Morello Cherry Tree

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 08:52

If you look at cherry trees in the south of France, in hot sunny weather they droop their leaves - it reduces the surface area exposed to the sun so they don't lose so much water due to transpiration in the heat.  

How many frogs?

We've always had a few frogs visit our garden from next door who have a pond.  We made a small wildlife pond this spring and now we have several frogs in residence and look forward to many more

Panda & Snoodle - Perhaps we could extend the East Ruston Day Out into a Long Day Out cum mini pub visit? 

I shall have to look at diary and pick a date for the ERDO or it'll mess up this Barnsdale thread - but at least it's keeping it bumped up.

They look lovely Dove.  I'm not sure if mine are the same one, no perfume?
