A couple of weeks ago I made a rare visit to central Manchester and walked through St Peter's Square. I was pleased to find that, as part of a major re-fashioning of the square, lots of Foxglove trees [Paulownia tomentosa] had been planted and they were in full bloom. They looked stunning, and and suited the urban environment very well. Would never have dreamt 30 yrs ago that such a sight would be possible. At least something positive from global warming.
