Grass cut – June 2014

2 Comments

Haddon’s had it’s second annual haircut. Or rather it had it more than a month ago, but the Summer is racing past – the newly green, shorter areas already bear testament to the amazing weather we’re having with long stretches of gloriously warm weather and a very few – probably too few for the keen gardeners among us, but who’s complaining – crashing downpours.

This year the hay crop was taken by the Barbers, cutting one week, leaving to dry and collecting a few days later and it was a really tidy job, so many thanks to them.

I just thought it worth mentioning, if only to mark the passage of time. It doesn’t seem possible that this wood was pastureland only sixteen months ago. Some of the trees from the first planting are already more than twice as tall as their plastic tubes and nearly all seem to have settled well.

  1. Yes, didn’t they do a tidy job! It also highlighted what a difference Mark’s path cutting makes; I loved the vivid green lines across the silaged areas. There are still some fantastic grasses around the trees, worth a look. And I think your last photo needs to be titled ‘Going home’!
