Open Evenings

On the Edge!

During the Summer months our woods are open on Wednesday evenings for visitors between 6 and 8pm.  One of the good things about this is the lovely light that we get across our meadows at this time in the evening.  Indeed, the woods are aligned such that the evening light is much more compelling than the morning light in most places.

Last night we opened for the first time this year, and were really lucky with the light, which was perfect for wildflowers and insects alike.  These are a few photos that I took last night, and also on a couple of other evenings during the week.  We had lots of visitors last night and I am hoping that the open evenings prove to be popular again this year.  We don’t charge for entrance, so if you want to come along, please do!
