After our celebration of Harvest during the service on October 2nd, we went into the garden to plant two trees. A Eucalyptus and a Holly. Both trees were bought by monies left to the church by Pat Maguire who was a keen gardener and always had some eucalyptus branches in her home and was also known to make a holly wreath. We were delighted that two of Pat’s children were able to join us and help plant the trees.
While it will be a while before the trees have grown enough to safely cut for use in the church, we look forward to doing so for years to come. Snowdrops have also been planted around the Eucalyptus tree and the plan is to move some of the bluebells to around the holly.
A second holly bush which was already in the garden in a pot has been planted just along from the holy tree.
