I watched the weather forecast for Friday closely, it really did not look good. Another storm coming in with high winds but amazingly the weather stayed on our side until just after the tree planting. With parts of trees already on the ground from the storms the nights before, it felt so right to be planting a new tree that day.
Being a volunteer photographer at Charlecote Park, I get to see a few of the special events that happen within the park and this one was a lovely one to see.
A combined effort while constantly smiling :)
Wishing them both best wishes for the future together. May their relationship grow stronger and stronger through the years as the tree does too.

Here is a blog from Lisa who is the Park and Garden manager at Charlecote Park. Well worth a read. It tells you more about the storm damage in the park. I have just read it myself and I will be in later this week to take some more photos. Some of these trees have been around for 100's of years. Such a shame.
