The pine with yellow fluorescent dots have gone, a few with pink dots are still standing. The logging truck left deep trails in the mud, filled with melted snow. The wood feels bereaved and empty at first. Until we notice the moss, shoots of spring grass and the finely barbed beginnings of a wild rose.

The areas felled were part of a mature commercial forestry which will be left to rewild and regenerate with native woodland.
Wishing you all a blessed Monday and peaceful start to the week,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
