Digging .. a rare sight

A lovely day, from sunrise to sunset ..
Very little soil is dug here these days, but there is satisfaction in preparing beds for taking cuttings for making more baby trees this month, along with setting other old weedy beds up for later in the year. Juicy worms were rehomed carefully:)ย

And giving thanks for the slow recovery from fibromyalgia that allows me to be outside working in the sun. Birds are sunbathing too.

The planting commences

Our first of 7 small copses to be planted, with the help of friends. This is a new division between pastures, with a path through from top to bottom. Each fence line has hedgerow planting close to the fence so the growth will come through for sheep to browse. These will also provide shelter and windbreak along with habitat. The underplanting will come later, developing herbaceous layers, creating different opportunities, and supplies for pollinators.
