A rare treasure
A very tall specimen had become hemmed in amongst other mature trees at Orchards. Any flowers - given their subtle colour - were difficult to see in the higher canopy. One year at eye level these two flowers were captured on camera. Days later a wind ripped through the lower garden and tore one third of the tree down like a huge heel cutting. Such were the challenges of gardening at Orchards.
