Field Sports In Scotland Pt6

Cinnabar Moths

One of the afeild pastimes we played at was both fun and fantastic for the diversity of the environment. Andy lets his front yard grow totally wild with loads of different grasses, sedges and pants growing to seed, the birds are drawn to his garden in impressive numbers. We spend a great afternoon collecting seeds from a meadow to introduce to the his mini nature reserve. It was loads of fun to keep adding to the tally of different plants we'd gathered. I stopped counting at twenty and reveled in being ten years old again. 
Food for the soul and the birds. Way cool.

More soon

"...pants growing to seed..."

I'm not sure, but I think there is some kind of totally juvenile "So a Scotsman and an Englishman go hunting in the Highlands" joke in there somewhere.
