We have Trees
As you will be aware, the cottage was set up to house my late brother David's collection of memorabilia.
He lived in Lancaster so we also planted a tree in the Lune Valley to commemorate his life.
As David's was one of the first trees planted on this new site there are no trees in front of it and you get a nice view of the River Lune.
We also put a bench there in his memory, and it is at the end of the path to the plantings, by the tree.
We popped up North to take a look at how the tree was doing over half term. I had a nice conversation with an elderly gentleman who was also visiting a tree. He has to use a walking frame to get there so he likes to sit on the bench and he says that he always says hello to David and thanks him for the bench !
That cheered me up, I think David would have liked the fact that the bench has proved so useful and it is nice to think of him being thought of by the people who use it.
