Tree Following June Update

 For Tree Following this year, I've chosen a magnificent old cherry tree in North Merchiston Cemetery in Edinburgh. Crafty Green Boyfriend and I started walking round this cemetery (and the nearby Dalry Cemetery) every day for our #DailyExercise during the first UK lockdown last year. And we're still doing the same walk regularly, though not quite as often. 

The tree was magnificently in bloom at the time of my last update (which you can read here). By the end of May however, it had lost all its blooms, though it is still magnificent. 

You can see St Michael's Church through the branches 

and there's a nice array of flowering plants at the foot of the tree, including this cow parsley

For Tree Following and 30 Days Wild.
