A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to visit and deliver a workshop in stunningly beautiful meadows at Lower Winskill near Settle in the Yorkshire Dales. The meadows at Lower Winskill are a nationally rare habitat, rich in wild flowers and insects, especially butterflies and bumblebees. The hay meadows are recorded in late sixteenth century documents when they belonged to three smaller farms. After the workshop I spent a lovely couple of hours wandering alone, picking and gathering beautiful plants. It was such a delight to work with some of these pickings  yesterday - hope you like what I have done with them.
