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 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.
There hasn't been much rain recently here in Edinburgh, but my cherry tree still seems to be thriving
Although a lot of the vegetation in the cemetery looks very dry at the moment, trees like this cherry provide shade and help keep the soil slightly moister for plants like this Rosebay Willowherb
Lovely to see the trees.
With all the very dry weather we have had some of our trees have already started shedding leaves ...
All the best Jan
Looking at your cherry tree, one wouldn't know a drought was underway. Nice to see.
Good to see that your tree hasn't suffered from a lack of water as so many have.
It's a shame that it appears to be a non-fruiting variety. xx
Churchyards always do seem shady and green to me - the cherry is looking good, but it is a pity if it doesn't fruit...
Thanks for following.
Best wishes :)
