Visit from The Hulk

Marvel must have sent Hulk because everything has turned green!

He left the nettle-pulling for the rest of us superheroes, in the form of Howard, Marcus, Wayne and myself…

Thanks – Hulk!

We set up camp at bench #2, the area where we put down a load of lady’s bedstraw seeds. We need to take care not to pull this out, thinking it is sticky-weed. They are both of the same cleavers family so may well look similar before flowering.

DSC_2392The newly seeded areas are starting to really green up. Hopefully, in a few weeks, we will have an idea of what is actually growing.DSC_2401Here’s one we seeded earlier. It’s looking very green!

Something else going green are the whips that we dug up from clearing #2 and planted into our hedge at clearing #3.

It’s a nice feeling to be using the natural resources around us to create something new.

After our coffee and cookie break…

Butterflies spotted were brimstone, orange-tip, peacock and speckled wood.

iRecord has been updated (please let me know how you get on with iRecord as a recording tool).

Also, please shout out any wrongly identified flowers.

Next week we are at bench #3 with a promise of banana cake…
