A glimmer of hope ?

Post  Guest on Mon Mar 01, 2010 8:06 pm

Tried to work yesterday. My good self and 9 offenders, were supposed to clear brush,brambles and litter from an ancient trackway. We were soaked to the skin within half an hour and had to give up by midday. You can just make out a small ammount of water at the bottom of the valley

Returned today, warm and sunny all day. This is the first time I've seen the sun since Christmas. Notice how the valley has filled up.

Field boundary alongside the trackway. Found a large patch of Spindle, some were very old with trunks as thick as my thigh.

Great find. Great when your work joins up with your hobby. Can you get the lads to dig up all the ones your allowed Laughing

We had good weather also and it was a pleasure to be at work.

Another nice day. Washed the soil off and there's plenty of fibrous root.

Decided to remove the large root underneath. I put the cut root in its own pot as Spindle suckers freely.

Is this the same Will Baddely who, not one week ago, was bemoaning the fact that he needed to reduce his collection?

Or am I mistaken?

Innit.

Yep, guilty as charged. The voices in my head made me do it. "Just.. one ...more".........NO......"go...on....Will...you ...know.....you....want ...it"

LOL! I'm sure we can all sympathise with you there Will.

Matt and I are going out on t'hill with Mr T this Sunday, ostensibly to collect a huge Hawthorn he's been prepping for quite a few years. What's the chances Tony'll be the only one who comes back with a new toy?

Tony might be the only on to return with a tree but there are'nt many relative newbies in such a priviledged position as you and Matt

And don't we know it!

Just think yourself lucky though, mate. If I lived near you I'd be stalking you for bonsai wisdom. As it is, Tony drew the short straw!

There are some benefits from living on the fringes.... Not many, but some!
