Last weekend Alex and his Dad were busy planting 75 trees in the ground on our land. There are oaks and willow, ash, holly, hazel, elder and blackthorn. It doesn’t look like much now, but I know the years will pass quickly and before we know it we will be looking at a lovely hedgerow. Now with the front of the house sorted, the wood pile stacked high, trees safely tucked in the ground and drafts in the house plugged up I’m insisting that it’s time for things to slow down around here. Time to bring any other projects to a standstill and be together.
