Well so much for spring – I walked quickly through the meadow today and watched children enjoying sledging down the bank in flood field. The river Tone was completely frozen over as I crossed into French Weir. I guess over the next few days there will be floods as the ice and snow melts.
Do have a look at the newly laid hedge which is now complete. There is clearing up to do and then planting of tree whips – these are small trees which when planted in the hedge will increase the hedgerow biodiversity. We have a mixture of hawthorn, blackthorn, hazel, spindle, field maple and dogwood.
We now have frog spawn in the ditches so let’s hope there are soon more signs of spring.
