The Orange Tip

On The Wind


Reedmace shedding the last of their seed by the pond island; fluffed up in the early evening sunlight. Worth the resulting weeks of weeding out in waders..

Beech Wood


Last winter a large limb dropped off our stunning yet very elderly copper beech. It took about a day to cut away the brash-wood and smaller diameter branches. Knowing that in a few months the floor beneath the tree canopy would be a wash with spanish bluebells,  I cut the remaining limb  into lengths and piled them below. Beech wood and blue bells just look so at home together.
