To Enhance The Winter Reflection

Having planted the trees in the morning, Ali and Graham moved on to work on the border next to the weir. Working at the waters edge, the marginal plants needed to be cut down. The marginals were planted when the weir was reconstructed in September 2010 and the Iris pseudacorus (Yellow Flag Iris) flowered for the first time last year, see blog entry 8th June 2012 'Marginals In Flower'. The reason for this cut down was to allow the Salix and Cornus, see blog entry 23rd April 2012 'Turf & Bark', to reflect their stunning winter colours onto the still water on these warm, sunny winter days.
