On rainy days, I've looked at trees dripping wet; looking like everything else under the heavy clouds above - GREY! Even the beautiful scenery around us is dulled. In our neck of the woods there are many days like that. So many that we notice when it changes. Suddenly, you might see a ray of sunshine through the trees and the raindrops on the leaves seem to magnify the beauty of the colours. Out bursts greens, golds and ambers and the day just seems to light up. Meeting Elaine was just like that. Her smile was like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day. Unforgettable!

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
