Death in the garden - by the Old Schoolhouse

The pictue shows the pathetic patches where three carefully nurtured seedlings had been planted out to eventually take the place of the older trees. These seedlings had thrived and were healthy but then someone took a dislike to them.

Fairly soon the big trees here will be gone and despite all the many plantings and ceremony, all that will be left will be a junkies' bench surrounded by fast food and drinks containers on a barren patch of grass. If the council can afford it, there might be some flowers in the beds, but pretty flowers have little impact on air quality and heat islands. Do you still think that a nice bench in the dark attracts nature lovers and is a human right which must not be removed?
