Scything season starts

In mid-April we got our scythes mowing again in the welcome area.


We have really made a difference here.  In 2012 it was mostly bramble, which we cleared.



 Then we got a burst of stinging nettles


and with repeated mowings we now have a lot more grass 
and a more diverse array of flowering plants.  


But we still have to keep mowing as it's now docks that are trying to dominate.
