Got me stumped there!

A few snippets about flowers and mowing in this blog

Wympole & Wratsworth

Where the mushrooms Where the mushrooms

Time to wonder down the south avenue to see what flowers are growing down there since our green haying, plus I might find some late St Georges mushrooms. I did, loads of them and they are late this year, the soil has been quite cold so far this year, so much so that the spring sown arable crops are struggling to get going.

Plantago Plantago

Speedwell Speedwell

Plantago is doing well and so are the creeping buttercups which makes the avenue look like gold, then there are clumps of speedwell scattered through the fields with delicate pencilled lines adorning the blue flowers.

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
