A new season begins

Now the warmer April weather is slowly arriving, life in WBX is resurgent after a very wet, but mild, winter.  The shot below, taken from overhead, shows how well the white clover is doing and, so far as I can tell, it has all arisen from a seedling that appeared on bare soil 8 years ago a few months after this project was started.

The central sallow log still seems pretty solid despite its coating of moss and tufts of rush, and the tutsan and herb-2014-04-11 11.38.01robert on the right, and the hairy tare centre left are all doing well.

The sallow stools are beginning to sprout and the whip that I did not coppice last autumn is now well in leaf.  Hopefully it will attract some early caterpillars.
