Early morning delights in south Norfolk
The birds woke me early this morning, as they do every morning, but today I decided to take the dogs out for an early walk, before any rain set in.
It was lovely - it's lovely every day. There's always something to raise the spirits, whatever the weather. This is what cheered me today at 6.30:
glorious poppies standing with grasses,
the village church with marguerites growing by the boundary wall,
cow parsley that's already set its seed.
And below are 2 new hedges on the edge of the small holding where the lovely Clun Forest sheep live. This first photo is their new hedge, planted this year. The second photo shows a similar hedge planted 5 years ago and is now an absolute haven for wildlife.
