Sweet damp scents pervade throughout the forest, revived by the life giving attributes of fresh clean rainfall the land bursts into life, the greens appear deeper, greener, more varied in their hue, making the purples of tall elegant Foxgloves radiate with renewed vigour. Highland Water, being the longest tributary of the Lymington River, extending high into inner forest and being blessed with a large catchment area, sees its flow increased as the rain water leaches quickly off the still sun hardened ground. The filigree of tiny tributaries which criss cross the landscape carries the life giving fluids too swiftly for much long term benefit to be afforded to the water hungry flora and fauna.
