Such lovely colours!
As the nights lengthen and the days grow colder, the glorious colours of autumn appear in the world. I’m writing this newsletter just over a week after the autumn equinox, but already the change has been traumatic. I’ve started lighting my fire in the evenings, a good stock of logs from the world keeping me warm. We have plenty of well dried wood in our logpiles for everybody who can collect it, all we ask for in return is a small donation to the charity. (more…)
High summer in the wood – Today’s report from Boduan Sanctuary Wood.
People, you’re allowed to vist the wood at last! The five mile travel limit has been lifted and visitors can come back to Pen Llyn. Our gates are open as usual; all are now welcome.
It’s such a lovely time of year! Everytime I go to the wood, I see something different…
Happy Easter from the Eternal Forest!
Life goes on in the wood! Spring is the most beautiful season.
To ensure the safety of mourners and staff in the Eternal Forest, the following precautions will be taken with immediate effect.
Please do not visit the wood if you or anyone in your household are showing any symptoms of the virus, if you are feeling unwell, or if anyone in your household is self-isolating because of possible infection during the previous 14 days.
When visiting the wood, please observe physical distancing of at least 2 metres from anyone from outside your household.
Please wash your hands before and after your trip to the wood and wear gloves or use alcohol hand gel after touching the gate or toilet door handles.
Only use the toilet facilities if absolutely necessary and wash your hands or use alcohol hand gel before and after use.
The carpark has a maximum capacity of 8 cars at any time. During a funeral 2-3 spaces will be taken by staff and the funeral car, so mourners will be restricted to a maximum of 5 cars, and are reminded that they should only share a car with people from their own household. When parking, please leave 2.5 metres between cars.
These restrictions are necessary to prevent the spread of the Covid 19 virus and are subject to review as official advice changes.
This autumn is spectacular! Yes, the recent weather may have been dire but the colours are glorious. The beeches are particularly lovely this year, all tawny and gold. And there’s so much fruit, so many fungi, so many nuts – I’ve never known an autumn like it.
Although it feels like autumn, the woodland trees are still green. I hope the storms don’t arrive for some weeks yet!
