Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - the marshland on our fields as the river rises

Most of the furthest of our fields is under water for about half the year. A good quarter of the second and largest of our fields is in a similar way. But we were just about able to walk along the edges of both fields between the marsh and the river itself today. The Dee is high, right at the top of the bank on this,the Welsh, side. Over among the infidels on the English side, it has already spread into the fields.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - New Trees, will Miss North West Charity Eleanor Farr come help plant them?

Unlike Eleanor I do not want 50p from you to help plant a tree.  Nor do I want to cover the whole of Wales and much of England with trees in the misguided belief that this will save the planet. Instead I just buy my own trees with my own money to make this place where I live a better place. Here are the latest two which will soon be joining the 22 tree new orchard I have created on the upper field above the barns.
