How Brown is my Valley?
How brown is my valley?
It’s that time of year again! As each day passes, my verdant oasis is turning into a drab brown scraggy place. I know it’s natural, an annual event, and I should be used to it by now, but my daily life does have less sparkle.
As Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve pulls remaining energy deep into its roots, I have to change my mindset and enter winter mode, too. I need to concentrate on getting the marsh ready for spring and the next growing season. Like the marsh, I, its volunteers, and the cattle must busy ourselves with getting rid of the dead growth in readiness for the new.
