Fell Foot’s sunny meadow

Image

In contrast to today’s torrential rain, we enjoyed a particularly sunny couple of hours in the park yesterday with the Trust’s Gardens and Parks specialist, Simon. He’ll be providing advice whilst we put together new planting plans for the park and continue tree management and conservation.  He also put some of Fell Foot’s best features in a national context for us, in particular the spectacular trees (more to follow on this!).ImageThe southern meadow, with its mown walkway, looked gorgeous! The path will make a great Park Run in the next couple of months (check out http://www.parkrun.org.uk to register and/or volunteer!).  Park staff have recently been working hard with Cumbria Wildlife Trust to establish meadow perennials, and the bees were enjoying the results (I failed to get a photo of one in action – sorry!). Image
