Wildlife is flourishing in Swedenborg Square Orchard, as revealed by these stunning pictures by local photographer Tosca Yemoh. The orchard was created in 2013 by Trees for Cities for EastendHomes, and it hasn’t taken long for birds, mammals and insects to move in.

The cornfield annuals and other wild flowers planted beneath the trees create a riot of colour.
