This afternoon the tree was planted at the entrance to the garden. It is hoped that over the weekend the second tree can be transported and planted.
Whilst on the subject of trees the 'paper bark' birch trees which adorn the entrance to the Memory Garden are looking magnificent.
In the harsh light of Winter the almost tissue thin white bark purports a harsh contrast to the brown and grey colours left in the garden.
Finally as the day came to a close one of the local Robins burst forth into song in the Sycamore tree above our heads. This melancholic winter song has replaced the happy song of summer. Reminding us that it is a long hard road for the next few months!
