Summer time

Two old willows are in the slow process of dying by the Terling river, looking at their vast trunks and you realise they will have to rot and fall because they are too large to cut with chainsaws and the branches too rotten for clambering up as well.  Old giants with their great roots  embedded in the bank will make the land on the other side of the river 'wild' for a time.   Why is England always 'white'at this time, great hawthorns flower in the hedgerows and cow parsley spreads itself with the exuberance of early summer - beautiful.

Young blackbirds keeping a keen eye on the compost bin for worms, not a good idea when there are cats around.
