Yesterday, despite warnings of poor weather we were blessed by kind, but cold weather again. The sun shone through drifts of hill fog to show glimpses of the extraordinary place that is home to the Woollenlines.
Brecon Beacons National Park have a wonderful trainee warden project funded, with vision, by the Lottery. Yesterday the six trainees, with four engineers from the Severn Bridge and an assortment of others ( two very important funding saviours) joined Graham Cowden and myself to carry wool and seed up onto Pen Trumau.
We planted cuttings, fixed wool sausages made by both one of the local farmers and the trainees and sowed some seed left over from the summer. The seed may sit the winter out and germinate in spring but we don’t know, meanwhile the cuttings continue to flourish, and as more grow they offer increasing support, with help from the wool for whatever new ones we plant.
The site continues to inspire questions and awe.
