Alone in heaven with the Queen

Wympole & Wratsworth

A beautiful valley A beautiful valley near Frumoasa and this was the view we had while mowing

Mowing first thing Mowing first thing

Well we were in for a treat the next day as Laszlo Demeter (oh no Harry Potter comes to mind! where were we going 😉 ) an eminent plant biologist took us to one of his hay meadows in the mountains near Frumoasa. Laszlo had spent quite a few years looking for some land to buy and eventually found this meadow. It’s in a quite isolated valley with a very very long dirt track leading up to the hectare of land. A lot of the hay meadows have begun to scrub up including this meadow and I suspect many plots of land will disappear under the every encroaching forest. However for our part we were going to mow this one and learn about the little rarities that grew in this area.

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.
