On a recent visit to eldest daughter I thought I would visit one of the many houses I have lived in. This tree is one of two that I bought many years ago when it was in a 3 inch pot and measured just 4 inches high. I kept them in a bucket until they were about 2 foot high then planted them out at the end of the path. One of them had to be cut down because it was lifting the paving but this one still survives though for how long is anyones guess. No it is not Leylandii it is a Thunbergii.
Here is our favourite new resident Dennis. Dennis is a Lab staffie cross, daft as a brush and steals our wood pile.
