The days are longer than the nights – Newsletter 135 – Spring 2023

It’s Spring time! It really is Spring at last! The nights are getting ever shorter and the sun rises higher in the sky each day, illuminating places that have been shaded for the last six months, bringing light and life and joy. March is not going out like a lamb but the wind gusting through the trees doesn’t have icy teeth any more. Or not today!


Happy Christmas – Newsletter 134 – December 2022

It’s time to celebrate! Welcome the returning sun! From Wednesday the days get longer! The birds have started singing again, perky little wrens – King of the Winter, according to folklore – can be seen hopping in and out of log-piles and the robins are as plentiful, cheerful and friendly as ever. We love them all!

Welcome to the first Newsletter of 2022 – Newsletter 130 – January 2022

Welcome to the first Newsletter of 2022! January is almost over and I’m so happy to see signs of Spring at last! It builds up gradually from here: the fresh young leaves on honeysuckle will be joined by baby leaves on hawthorn and rose, then willow and cherry, and on it will go, the wood turning steadily green as the days lengthen. The first lambs’ tails have already appeared on the willows and we’ll see other catkins soon. (more…)
