As part of his Year of the Environment celebrations, the Archbishop of York today has invited people to view online the Summer update from Bishopthorpe Gardens.
The section entitled ‘Summer at Bishopthorpe Gardens’ can be viewed at www.archbishopofyork.org.
This is the second of four seasonal updates about the flora and fauna habitats within Bishopthorpe Palace. It is hoped that this resource will not only appeal to gardening enthusiasts and 'twitchers' but all those with a general interest in the environment.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu said: “It is thanks to the efforts of the gardeners that the grounds continue to look so good. In summer, there is always so much colour in the garden, which is a joy to see”
