Crab apples flowering
In April last year (2015), Sid Smailes planted five ornamental crab apple trees in the Community Garden in Powburn.
Well, after carefully tending them for over a year, they are now all flowering – and they look wonderful, with each tree showing a profusion of white flowers. I’m sure that in a few year’s time, once they’ve become really established, they are going to look even better. They certainly cheer up the community garden, which is a real asset to the residents of Powburn.
Once again, many thanks to Sid for all his efforts in maintaining the garden for the benefit of residents and visitors.
