Cutting Back

I got to Berrybanks on time and thought I was on my own. Rather than start to pull up more Sow Thistle, I just wandered southwards and cut back any brambles that looked like they were heading towards the path.

It is quite strange how one can become so relaxed and at peace, as you gently meander along. The path becomes wide and then becomes narrow and then is wide again, it is open and then it is closed and then it is open again. Such a diverse environment.

Loads of butterflies and other insects buzzing around.

As I made my way back to Berrybanks I caught up with Mick and we identified a load of new wild flowers that have come up in the cleared area.

The whole path is looking really good and very diverse in terms of habitat.

Something for the future, we need to mark out areas where we sow wild flower seeds, so that we can easily identify the areas and weed out anything that should not be there. I suggest meter-wide strips with pegs in the ground at the corners. We can sow Kidney Vetch and Wild Strawberry and keep everything else out. At the moment we are struggling to find what we saw a few weeks ago because it has greened up so much.

Great to be out there today.
