A foul day of cold, wet easterly winds, but luckily we spent the day with other foresters at the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
The garden boasts the largest single span greenhouse which houses plants that are being ousted from native habitats by wine growing. This garden in the foreground features plants from South Africa.
The morning was spent listening to 5 lectures on forestry subjects. Unfortunately there was only one good speaker. The others knew their subject, but were poor communicators, apart from one, who was a poor communicator and and seemed to know nowt!
We deserted the afternoon walk to see grasslands and ducked into the relative warmth of the huge greenhouse, which was delightful. Another plus of the day was meeting the Director who had strong Pembrokeshire connections and went to school with a helicopter pilot that I have known since the early 1980's.
