A dog that climbs trees is threatening to steal the limelight from the
hundreds of botanical species on show at the annual illuminated trail
at Spetchley Park Gardens, Worcester.
Holly, a short-haired collie owned by Kate Portman, the head
gardener, climbs trees like a cat. â€œWhen the illuminated trail is on
she goes crazy,â€ said Ms Portman. â€œShe simply runs and accelerates
straight at and up the trunk. She sits in the branches for a few
seconds, admiring the view, then jumps down.â€
