The weather has been swinging between foggy and wet and rather nice and sunny without being too hot. When its not raining and my bones are not aching too much I’ve been working in the lower field. My plan to scythe meandering paths through the long grass and other vegetation is almost done. Hopefully they will still be visible when the spring comes and then I will need to regularly keep them clear with my large curvy cutter!
The other project may have best been described by a friend as sounding like “building sand castles and damns on the beach when I was a child”! The idea is that I create a mud wall big enough to create a ‘watering hole’ in the little stream that runs along between the bottom of our lower field and the woods. I’ve dug a bit of a pool and most of the wall. Which I will leave to “settle” now till the spring and then when the stream is less full I will close the gap and see what happens!
Thw wall now extends across both banks of the stream.
