Received a wonderful email this morning from Blog visitor Geraldine who has planted this ‘Tilia Oliveri’ in Ireland for Ollie. It’s National Tree Week in Ireland, and, to complete the circle and introduce an East Anglian dimension, the tree itself came from Suffolk. The miracle of the web in action. How brilliant. Geraldine says that it was Stoke’s win over Bolton that part-inspired the planting day, and that assistance was given by her Boxers, Phoebe and Millie. It will cost me, obvs, because one day we will have to go and visit the tree, and that day will coincide with a race meeting at Punchestown, but it will be worth it.
