In that post I wondered if the stump would resprout as the tree surgeon said it would and I'm delighted to report he was right. Our spring stirrings have included the pictured three green shoots of recovery.
I nearly posted last month that I thought it would happen. You may remember I showed you a 'stealth seedling' which had crept up unnoticed at VP Gardens until I spotted it last June.
I couldn't chop it down completely as by then there were too many other plants in the way, then in late March I spotted the remaining stump was beginning to sprout.
However, I didn't post about it last month as when I came to take the photograph of a tiny twig against a brick wall, it was far too boring for words. This is much better :)
I had a bit of a surprise last week when walking down the bottom of the garden when I found Mr and Mrs mistle thrush have set up home on top of our fence, You may need to click on the picture to spot what I found.
Thank goodness I haven't disturbed them, they're now merrily flying in at full throttle to keep up with meeting the demands of their hungry brood.
Have a look at Loose and Leafy to find out how this month's other Tree Followers are faring.
