On The Move

Gentlemen, Lady: His Imperial Majesty is on the move. Half my 10 captive larvae have moved from their hibernation quarters to positions close to buds, and are greening up too. Probably similar doings in the wild. I'll visit soon.

Meanwhile, is this the oldest sallow in the Empire? A male Salix x Reichardtii alive and well at Ashridge in the N Chilterns (near the Bridgwater Monument, where there must be a 'master tree'). It's obviously been coppiced in the past.
