Who Needs The Gym…!

So today was the day that we have all put off for so long.

It was dragging the heavy round bench from the bottom of a stream to the highest bit of embankment.

OMG!! If ever we had a reason to just leave it, it was now. Tough work that needed a coffee and cookie break straight after to rebuild energy.

But the view from here is outstanding…

And the wildflowers create a lot of interest in the near distance, so we raked off the old stuff and made it ready for next year.

We will probably just throw a load more wildflower seeds down and rake them in, but essentially, it should start to self-seed by now. The more we rake it and trample it, the more it feels like sheep grazing it, so wildflowers should just spring up.

We did the same with the bird-feeder clearing and are all set now for creating as many little wildflower nooks and crannies along the way in the new year.

Something else that we chatted about was having a section where we clear out all the straggly young trees and scrub, and just encourage the growth of individual trees and allow them to mature. I will speak to Sustrans and do some googling to see how this might look like.

Anyway, Lockdown Two has happened. We will no-doubt have to break into groups of two for the next four weeks.
