London's Green ParksLondon's Green Parks
April 17, 2010

People think of London as a sprawling mass of concrete or lots of old ancient buildings with an untold history, but it is a lot more than that. Around London is the protected 'Green Belt' and in London itself there are many green spaces; from the giant Royal Parks, Botanic Gardens, privately owned parks to more modest parks, then the Victorian Parks, down to the much used Municipal\Council Parks; all beautiful and each one designed and kept for a different use and reason.

I have a few small trees that I grew from seeds. Most of them did not make it through our zone 6 winter outdoors, but a few survived. I am hoping these trees will produce flowers and seeds that are much more comfortable with zone 6 winters. The tree is lovely when it flowers in spring. The flowers attract bees and butterflies, and birds feed on the ripe fruit.
