Another great working bee was held at Oura Oura today, under the thoughtful care of Annette Dean with a group of local friends and others from further afar.
In the morning we cleared foxgloves and thistles along the edge of the beautiful Liffey River.
It was sparkling and singing, and at one spot in the green and shady shallows of a hidden backwater I saw evidence of a Platypus living.
In the afternoon we cut and pasted to keep on top of blackberries being tenacious along the northern side of the river below the Liffey Road. As always the light and shadow moving across the steeps hills and gullies of the larger Liffey Valley made for beautiful and inspiring moments.
Eventually too tired to tackle any more and satisfied with our efforts, we packed it in for the day and left happy to have had the pleasure of the cooperation, the reacquaintences and the conversations that are all part of a good working day.
