This short compilation was stitched together in a hurry, to coincide with our talk on June 17th on Noel Kingsbury and Annie Guilfoyle’s Garden Masterclass Thursday teatime chat at 6 pm. The limitations of Zoom means sharing videos clips on such a presentation doesn’t seem to work.
So this is an attempt to demonstrate that experiencing a garden or hay meadow in West Wales in early June, is far more multi-dimensional than still images and words can convey. And indeed, that the whole experience is hugely influenced by much more than just the plants – light, movement, insects, birdsong all have a big impact on how one reacts to the space.
Please excuse the sometimes shaky hand held camera. I really should use a tripod, but with a now trailing microphone, at a busy time of the year, and our first small batch of semi-manual haymaking completed, time is of the essence.
Anyway this short clip gives a good feel for how vibrant and busy the garden and meadows are right now, in what’s turned out to be quite a benign month for us here, so far.
