The pond is dry but we can sit on the seat and look at the buttercups!

Yesterday evening several of us met at Grove Piece to remove weeds from the protective tubes and remove tubes completely from some young trees that were big enough to stand on their own or were being constricted by the tubes. The big event of the evening however was the installation of a seat so that visitors can rest and contemplate the young wood. Crispin (from Big Wood) provided hefty chunks of sweet chestnut and Alan fashioned them into a simple and pleasing design.

As you will see from the picture the pond is completely dry following the very dry weather we have had recently. No doubt it will fill again when the weather changes.
