The Great Poplar Debate

Planting the new cherry tree this morning (with more plantings to come) got me thinking about the huge number and variety of trees we have established over the years.

Having the privilege of living on a farm surrounded by plenty of space, over time we must have planted hundreds of individual different trees, let alone the thousands of cider apple trees in the orchards.  Our house, which looked very odd in an empty field 30 years ago, can now hardly be seen for trees and hedges, and no doubt more on the way.

I think after a week back to normality with work and school runs we have finally floated back down to earth from our wonderful wedding. From the set up on the Friday to landing back from our honeymoon, we never stopped smiling. So many people who came to our day expressed how much fun they had and what a fab venue Harefield is; the word is being spread far and wide! We never doubted your vision and reaped all the rewards of the finished product. I took a moment to just pause and take in the sight of our friends and family with smiley faces, happily tucking in to food, drink in hand and flowing in out and around the barn just as we wanted. You and Robert both worked so hard across the whole weekend to keep things running smoothly and we are so grateful as our memories of our day is just one of pure happiness, love and joy.
