Planting at Cuddy's Well

The rain started on Saturday during the last hour of the walk and increased whilst we were at St Cuthbert's Well, planting teasels, lemon balm and foxgloves as appropriate for a saint who had a great affinity with wildlife.  We also planted "Jacob's Ladder" [Polemonium Caeruleum] which is named after Jacob's dream of angels ascending and descending between heaven and earth which prompted him to exclaim "Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it!".  By Cuddy's Well it will be a symbolic reminder of Cuthbert's vision in the hills.
