On the morning of the 14th October, Friends of the Path worked a little north of Ogbourne St George, where trees were beginning to grow over above the path. As the trees all compete for light, they get tall and stringy, and sag. The Friends of the path have cleared a lot of headroom and some width, and while doing so came across a lot of spindle trees (Euonymus europaea). At this time of year, they have bright pink fruits with orange seeds inside them and look lovely in the hedgerow. They accept pruning, and the hope is they will produce more growth next year.
