Dreaming of Springtime

(January 09, 2013)

Rather than more soggy photos, this is one from last year.  These lovely old Hawthorn/May bushes are in a small field in front of the cottages, called The Old Fowl Pen.  This strip of ancient grassland borders onto  a small stream. Visiting sheep from our neighbours' flock help to chew off the grass.  The gnarled tree trunks are from many years of rubbing by the sheep.  The Barn owls can be seen at dusk, tracking along the stream.  Roll on springtime.
