7 Woodland Walk and Froggy Pond

Wish list - Trees and shrubs - but no space!
Heteromorpha arborescens shiny flaky bark
Erythrina humeana for sunbirds
Kiggelaria africana wild peach tree, shade tree, canopy for birds,
orange fruit Feb to July for boubou, thrush, robin and white-eye,
attracts black hairy Acraea caterpillars who strip the leaves and bring cuckoos.
