Litter-pick and Wildflowers

We did a good old litter-pick today on the Berrybanks to Potsford’s Dam section. Victoria, Tom, Mick, Reece and Paul made it to the bird-feeder clearing and we fanned-out from here, after a coffee and catch-up.

We have loads of wildflowers and grass growing, but it is not quite the classic and colourful wavy meadow that I had in my mind’s eye.

I guess we just need to go with it across the summer and try and weed out what we don’t want in the autumn.

Great to have Mick and Steven guiding, educating and correcting us on wildflower ID. It is the only way that we are going to learn, so please keep doing what you are doing, guys šŸ˜€
