Another thing about Grenoble I liked is the city had maples and ginkos growing in open spaces. No snobbery about ‘native’ plants. Our own dear Edinburgh Council ripping out beautiful fluffy flowering pink cherry blossom and foisting on us the rowan whether we like it or not..

  1. Really ? They took the cherry trees away because they weren’t native ? Good grief !

  2. yes… lots of cross emails about it some years ago regarding Nicolson Square. The pink fluffy blossom was one of the things that gave me hope in the spring.. hope all gone :(
