It’s been extraordinarily mild. An excellent time to be out and about foraging along the canal side or ‘on the cut’ as we folks who live on or near the canal call it.
And indeed, this is a great place to snip away and get some lovely beaded ivy amongst other things for our wild garden style floral design. I’m thinking of all those Autumn and winter (whisper it) Christmas wreaths we will be making soon.
We’ve had no frost yet – unusual for up north – it’s coming though, you can feel it in the cool breeze.
I wonder if it’s going to be a hard winter. The tree ivy says it is, but we shall have to wait and see of course. I know too that if you forgave, like me, you’ll do it responsibly and with care. Never take too much from one area and never ever pick any wild flowers my darlings. They belong to the earth and everyone.
On the site, there are also lots more articles about my evolving canalside cheshire flower cutting garden.
