New hand drills to try

After a wander the other day I decided to harvest a couple of new drills to try. I've been using Elder gathered locally on a not so local Clematis(only found in gardens here) hearth.
The area I chose has been disturbed in recent years by tree works and all sorts of useful and interesting natural and naturalised plants are springing up and flourishing in all this warm wet weather, and without competition for light.

Buddleia to start

Closely followed by Teasel

I guess my out of practice hands may start to resemble the burliest of burly trees!  

Its hard work regularly walking past this chap without a spot of foraging.

The new and improved run and coup has been completed and four beauties have just been launched.
Egg On!
So say a big cockuloodooloo to Bean, Rosy, Gertrude (mine) and Beaky he has his head down as this one likes his snap, but he looks like an American eagle hence the name.
Lets hope the defences are sufficient this time (should be, Wickes have done well), and Mr Fox finds rabbits for tea.
