Dot’s Dash in May, 2014

Only 9 Hurriers arrived for the walk at Dot’s Dash yesterday, no doubt because the rest thought the weather would be bad.  As it turned out, we had perfect hiking weather and enjoyed a very pleasant walk indeed.

We were keen to see whether the magnificent Erica pillansii had recovered from the fire of a few years ago, and we were very glad to note that they are slowly returning.  The main flowering period is over, but there were still sufficient plants and blooms to indicate that a full recovery is more than likely.  We look forward to re-visiting the area in April next year, when the slopes should be red once more!
