105 – Canopy

Dear Lucy,

The bunting may be coming down but we’ve not finished our celebrations.

As part of the Queen’s Green Canopy we’re planting six new trees leading up to the depot entrance.

Millie chose Japanese Maples because they’re bright and cheery and come in lots of unusual colours.  In October we plan to plant seven new trees along the high street in Mouse Town.

Love M.M.

  1. Dear Morris, what a lovely long lasting tribute to the Queen and so important to the environment.
    Thank you.

  2. Dear Morris,
    Since moving in here, four years ago we have planted lots of trees. In the paddock where our shepherds hut sits is a wildflower meadow & pond. We planted a winter flowering cherry, prunus subhirtella autumnalis. A weeping silver pear, a pussy willow and a silver birch. We planted a ginko biloba just outside the paddock and all these young trees are doing brilliantly.
    My sister gave me a Rowan which we planted in the lower orchard amongst all the apple trees which predate our residence by many decades.
    We planted a new section of the orchard with cherry, pear, and apple trees, plus to mark the final resting place of our late great flatcoat retriever, Freddie, we planted a victoria plum. This, because he used to love standing on his hind legs and plucking the fruits from an old plum tree, now replaced.
    So the tree planting continues, this birthday my sister has promised me a hawthorn tree. I love these, they have fabulous blossom and the shapes they form sometimes look Japanese with curved branches & trunks.
    So glad Morris is doing his bit and hope he enjoyed the Jubilee.
    Looking forward to the book,
    Very best wishes
    Lucy Dormouse
