It was worth waiting for…

What was worth waiting for? The banana loaf cake that Marcus had promised last week, but we got rained off, so Reece, Marcus, Aaron and myself had to wait until this week.

bananasIt was delicious, it was so yummy I forgot to take a photo of us eating it – nom, nom, nom…

Possession is nine-tenths of the law, nothing to see here, M’lord…

We just pulled up a load more nettles and newly shooting brambles on our wildflower patches. Stuff is starting to sprout so it won’t be long until we start to see a bit of colour.

Our hedge is starting to green up in places. We can work on this in the autumn, but it is getting there slowly but surely.

This is the wildflower clearing at bench #4, with the view across the heath.

And this is the reed-bed on the other side of the bank that needs a lot of TLC in the autumn.

As always, if you spot a wildflower ID error please shout out, if you have a spare bit of cash, consider us poor waifs and strays and our empty begging bowls (just click the link above), and of course, if you want to come on down and join us, you are more than welcome. Plenty of biscuits, cake, coffee and laughs…
