As a part-time shrink, full-time psychic, and one of only two living Nunnehi--the Cherokee equivalent to a fairy--Tessa Lamar has her hands full.
When her best friend guilts her into treating a gifted nine-year-old pageant queen, who's confessed to murdering her stepfather, Tessa breaks her rule to never work with kids. But how can a woman without a flicker of maternal instinct help a little girl who's a cross between Honey Booboo and the Long Island Medium? To make matters worse, Tessa and her two opinionated mates can't seem to agree on the color of the sky, let alone how to build a life together.
The relationship threatens to implode when Tessa's called in to help catch a child-killer and one of his ghostly victims follows her home. Armed with ancient magic, Tessa must risk her life to stop the murderer while risking her heart to a pint-sized psychic.

If you like southern humor, supernatural creatures, and a healthy dose of romance, then you'll love this series. So which are the most common trees in the capital? In inner London, birch, lime and apple top the list. In outer London it's sycamore, oak and hawthorn. In all, the surveyors found different kinds of tree, with private gardens making an important contribution to the diversity. So with the tree-planting season approaching, which trees might you think of putting in an urban garden?
You have first to be absolutely clear about what you want the tree to do. Does it have to screen something you'd prefer to not see? In which case, you need to think about height. Do you want to sit under it and have a drink or supper on a summer evening?
In which case, you don't want a tree that droops its branches too close to the ground. Most of all, you need to check a tree's eventual size. We need big trees, as the survey shows, but it's cruel to plant a lime or a London plane or an oak in a space that it will outgrow within 20 years. The same goes for the monkey puzzle Araucaria araucana , which I frequently see planted out as a baby in London front gardens.

Especially in Clapham. It might seem deliciously edgy, spare, strange, just the thing to contrast with the slate chip mulch. That is its destiny, and it's not a tree you can cut down to size. In a small space, I'd be thinking of a tree that had more than one season of interest. My first choice would be a pear.
Trees, art and the art of listening
I like the shape a pear tree makes, rather narrow in proportion to its height. In a small garden, that's a useful attribute. The first tree I ever planted in our present garden was a tall, elegant pear called "Chanticleer," which blossoms very early and turns a wonderful butter yellow before the leaves fall. But it's not a pear for eating. The fruits are small and hard. Or "Louise Bonne of Jersey" which ripens about now, and again is also fairly upright in growth. Crab apples make excellent trees for town gardens too, provided they're not the kind with purple foliage.
These look passable when the leaves first emerge in spring, but as summer moves on, the colour becomes ever more heavy and dismal. Malus hupehensis is much easier to live with, though eventually it will make a tree as wide as it is high. The flowers are scented, opening white from pink buds, while the fruits are about the size of cherries, and a good clear red. Whatever variety of tree you choose to plant though, choose it because you love it, not just because it's going to offset your carbon footprint. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
