'Hosting the event in a bird hide flavored it with a sense of theater. It brought people into a building built into a landscape that aimed to camouflage, rendering them invisible to the wildlife outside.
On that day the clapping of wings was drowned out by the clapping of hands, the cries of wading birds became woven into the threads of poetic words that chased one another out of the mouths of poets and story-tellers'.
We've long been fans of Olympia, Washington-based artist Chris Maynard (previously) who assembles shadowboxes of cut feathers depicting the silhouettes of birds as they sing, perch, and swoop across the canvas.

“After a storm there must be a calm,” sang Desmond Dekker. It’s not calm yet. At the coat-flapping edges of the gale we escaped the worst of the flooding and wind damage that hit the north. But we have not come out of it unscathed. Flood barriers have been erected on the river towns, and the Severn flashes across fields where swans and geese gather for the event.
As a writer, gardener and conservationist, I am fascinated by the way our attitudes to wild and cultivated plants shape the world we live in. Much of what I’ve learned about that I’ve discovered from botanical gardens — and Kew is the greatest of these.
