Not so much a walk - but plenty to take in - as Stuart 'Wildman' Mabbutt and his colleague William Mankelow took us through the Alphabet with focus on many different aspects of the garden we stood in. From our own 'grounding' and filtering out the unwanted noises from beyond the garden we learned how effectively a focus on one of our senses can make others retreat whilst we inspect and discover the world around us.
Stuart has developed his skills in the course of a lifetime's learning about nature and used them to great effect in combatting his own pain and problems. This made for a deeper lesson to add to our nature notes and discoveries in the midst of sculpture and greenery in the sunshine on Sunday morning.
