Today I measured the tallest Boggy Brae foxglove after it keeled over. It was two and a half metres tall (over eight feet).

Then I continued my wander and enjoyed the yellowish stipes of lemon-scented fern and four baby trees. They are all right at the base of two well grown birch trees. The question is whether to leave them there to grow or hoik them out. I’ll leave them for a while anyway.

If you look up from near these wee trees, there is a treescape of birch, sallow and a bit of honeysuckle that’s growing up on of the sallows.
