Aspen and a Peacock Butterfly

Victor Clements of Scottish Native Woods offer of a dozen aspen from different clones around the Highlands was an exciting and welcome one. Last Sunday Victor came here with another of our Scottish Wild Beaver Group members, Tina and her son Mungo, and we planted two of these small saplings. The photo shows my grandson, Adam, helping Victor plant one of them.

The link is to a blog site that deals with aspen and has some more photographs of this auspicious occasion.

 Louise drew my attention to this Peacock Butterfly, sunning itself on a warm afternoon.

The news that Erica died of septic shock comes as little surprise. She was stressed, suffered an injury, her immune system was weakened and she died. That's what they call best practice, I suppose.
