This morning we had a very pleasant surprise. A team from the Parks Department turned up to plant 2 Cherry trees on the verge in front of our house. There used to be a massive Oak tree there but it had to be removed after a branch split off and fell onto our neighbours wall. Tests showed that it was diseased and it had to go.
The policy in Birmingham is that when a tree is removed another one is planted but we are lucky and have 2. They should be in bloom soon and we look forward to the display. Got a couple of pics but you will have to understand that it was blowing a gale so we look a bit windswept.
