Late yesterday afternoon we had the most horrendous rain storm. It lasted for one hour, an inch of rain fell. Looking from the window my heart sank. I had intended to mow the grass and raise the tree canopy on some of the larger specimens, during the week
As I walked into the garden this morning I could hear the cuckoo. For me, this is a heart stopping moment. I hold my breath, I cannot afford to miss a single note. The birds are in decline, I dread the day he no longer calls.
The sun is shining.........the birds are singing.............it is going to be a beautiful day.
I look across the garden, for a brief moment, just a brief moment, I feel I have died and gone to heaven. I see the landscape before me, I feel a tremendous sense of wonder........it is a good to be alive day :)
Out in the fields Together with the birds, I will be surrounded with mist.
