|Bryan Stringer; Paul & Jean Lythgoe, Lee Borrell and Susan
Stewart arrived on another beautiful day. We have been so fortunate that
many of our workdays this year have been dry and bright. The new publicity
brochures have now been produced and Jean and Susan folded this ready for
circulation. Bryan and Jean cleaned the rubbish from beside the greenhouse
at the herb tablet and Susan prepared the boat seats to be painted; a task
which Lee continued and finished. Jane Downall arrived at 12 noon and, with
Bryan armed with his garden map and co-ordinates, we set off around the woodland
garden to identify the trees.
It was a brilliant tour and Jane did a superb job of identification. We found
we have a very varied collection of trees including: Hornbeam, Ash, Elm,
Oak, Maple, Hazel, Birch, Lime, Apple, Holly, Populus and Hawthorn. (I think
that's all!) Bryan is going to mark up the trees on his map, full co-ordinated
and in the months to come, special ID plaques will be put on the trees.
Paul & Jean proceeded to clear an area around the pond and it is hoped
to have some of the overgrown plants in and around the pond removed.
