Damp ferns glistening.
I very much enjoyed the 12 weeks of near- uninterrupted sunshine in Cornwall. It made lockdown bearable.
But soils dried and despite watering, some of the new woodland trees, planted for my carbon footprint offset, failed.
Finally, sustained summer rain that will make a difference to vegetation.
Not only that: drops glitter like pretty gems on leaves…
…and fungi emerged from woodland soils overnight where I walked just yesterday on dry ground.
Water is life!
