Restricted life in the UK – the Park is still open (for exercise, in groups of two).

Today is the first day of a new set of Coronavirus restrictions in the  UK; one exercise walk a day for groups of no more than two people.  We have found it best to do this early in the morning and today at 06.30 the weather at that time was absolutely stunning. Things are still happening in the park; we have a new tree nursery being planted!

The tree nursery is because a large consignment of potted trees had been ordered for planting all over the park. With the current Coronavirus outbreak locking down on many activities, keeping the trees in their pots for an extended period would not have done them much good. So as a possibly temporary measure, they are being set out in a tree nursery, for relocation when that becomes possible. Many still have their labels; I will try to get a list of all the varieties for insertion here.

Postscript: Richard has just sent me this list of trees. They will stay in the nursery until  October, when they can be replanted to new locations (and I am sure we will miss them when they depart from their present location).

30 Acer campestre
20 Acer platanoides
30 Alnus cordata
30 Alnus glutinosa
30 Betula pendula
10 Betula utilis jacquemontii
35 Carpinus betulus
5 Fagus syl. 'Purpurea'
20 Fagus sylvatica 10ltr
10 Juglans regia
10 Liquidambar styraciflua
10 Liriodendron tulipifera
10 Malus 'John Downie'
20 Prunus avium
10 Quercus robur
20 Salix sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma'
10 Sorbus aria 'Lutescens'
30 Sorbus aucuparia
30 Taxus baccata
30 Tilia cordata

Only if they live together! Not sure if you need a piece of paper showing this.
