Trees and rain or trees in the rain

It’s been raining for what feels like an age but I think in fact is only about 36 hours. We had a soggy but great walk at Mabie Forest on monday and along with all the plantation of spruce that’s in there are a few sections of old trees that have escaped the saw and are still merrily growing away, you can just tell that they are the safe hiding places of many an elf and tiny bird dragon.

Today back to work and a day for clearing away the stack of plastic that has been covering a growing stack of pots on the shelves. I’ve been throwing things but never actually getting them finished and all of a sudden progress has been made.

Wet slip, is there anything better?
Dingly dells perfect hiding places for the mischievous creatures that I sometimes draw to put on my pots, as long as you are quiet they don’t mind you drawing them but they don’t like cameras, not at all. I told them I didn’t have time to be drawing yesterday as if I took as long as I would have needed to get these trees drawn then my paper would have turned to mush. So off they went skipping into their hidey holes, if you look closely you might catch a glimpse of a stray hat or a wing tip not quite pulled in far enough behind the moss.

    Hope you gave the last tree pic a potting update and a schedule of forthcoming events. They tend to have full diaries what with the growing season but I am sure they can fit in a quick dash down the M6 to Potfest. So if u are overtaken by a tree on the M6 make way for the branches – they tend to spread and remember trees are green and can do 80 miles on a gallon of sap. Treeditionaly you give such a wonderful tree a big hug………..
