Cherry Blossom Time

Sherborne, like many small West Country towns, likes to have its residential roads and avenues lined with fruit trees. Here is an example of a row of cherry trees in East Mill Lane which bloom in April:

Looking in the opposite direction, you can see the Old Castle beyond the cherry blossom:

This is just one example of the impact which fruit trees have on the environment of our town. It certainly gives us a sure signal that summer is on its way!

Newland Flats

Spring bulbs are always a welcome sight, especially when we’ve had such a long, wet winter 🙁

These bright and beautiful beds are planted by the residents of the Magna Housing Association Newland Flats and they cheer us up every year:

These gardens are a great example of community effort!
