My fav part of the garden these past two weeks is the COOL bush walk thats almost finished. Lime rock edging, bark path and timber uprights on the steps. Plus a chain and post handrail.

I just love the colour on this cherry tree, (Prunus Campanulata ). Its an early flowering cherry and can be seen in full flower from now till about mid-late September. Tui love this and often leave our feeding boxes to indulge on these flowers instead. Lucky we have this right outside our living room window so see the birds up close
