Once a year, on April 21st, we step over the boundary of Gribin Isaf and go on a Birthday Expedition
up the hill.
So, fortified by a hearty Birthday Breakfast consisting of our first harvest of the year
we packed our Birthday Lunch
and set off.
The hedgerows are erupting…
and, rather surprisingly this early, Bluebells
One exciting thing about an annual journey out of station is seeing birds that don’t venture on our plot…
and a bird which has nested at Gribin Isaf
Another thing about leaving home is being able to look down and see it
When we got to the top Jessie had to cool off
When got home again Jessie had to cool off
So at the end of the day, as the light shines through some of our newly planted trees
we look forward to a Birthday Dinner
