Photodiary     2011

22nd November: Ian  demonstrates the dye applicator, showing the shaft marked at 10 cm intervals. In the second photo he can be seen applying firm pressure with his right knee to the dye reservoir.

In due course his efforts are rewarded by the appearance of green dye which seems to have moved quite freely through the dam in the region  below and to the side of the slipway. The slipway threshold is well above the level of the lake at present, so nothing should be flowing into it.

The fruit of the Wayfaring Tree -  Viburnum lantana -formerly known as Hoarwithy. The fruit is mildly toxic and best avoided by the discerning wayfarer.
The fruit of the Spindleberry - Euonymus europaeus - a hard wood formerly used for spindles, skewers, pipe stems and artists charcoal. Its seeds are poisonous to humans but edible for some birds.
Eileen comments: We have watched this grow from a sapling over the last 16 years.
