Just in case you needed a reminder of how long the winter was, this picture was taken in early February, the one in the last post was taken in early March. This shows the replanting and new planting site below Ros Castle all ready to go, except for the snow, of course.
Our planters were in no rush as they were undertaking work in the Cheviots and were struggling with the weather. By the time they were ready to come to us, the Beast from the East had arrived and we could not get the trees to site! Never mind, it all came together in the end.
