The ball itself was enjoyable- I must say the demonstrators worked tirelessly to provide constant points of interest throughout the weekend and the flow of information and tips was very much appreciated.Dave Jackson in particular never seemed to stop and demonstrated a variety of different crafts. Thats Dave making Gypsie flowers on the Shavehorse.

What a lovely time of year this is, I always find early spring a good time of year to identify trees and shrubs in the field as they break bud at different times and look a lot less like one another than later in the season. I particularly like to see the delicate bright green fruit of Elm in the hedgerow set against the darkness of still dormant species:-
On the far right and left of the above picture is the blossom of Wild Cherry trees. Here's a close up of the Elm fruits.Another tree that looks dramatic at this time of year is the Blackthorn, in white drifting blossoms.
