I beg to differ Blog. As soon as I saw the image the words of the song/hymn by Cat Stevens came to mind.

Morning has broken.......

How right you are, Helen! It's beautiful.

I like the dappled effect of the sun playing on the trees and grass. Its fresh and green now.....but will soon be gold and red and Autumnal. Nature's rich tapestry!
(Bit over the top I know ...but I never tire of the landscape)!

Vb,it isn't over the top at all..it's a lovely description..

Thankyou Maureen (fellow amateur artist) if Wordsworth is inspired by 'Splendour in the grass and glory in the flower ....'. Who are we to contradict??? Keep on snapping David!!!

Helen. Cat Stevens had the hit, but the words were written as a hymn by Eleanor Farjeon in the 1930s to a Scottish Gaelic tune "Bunessan" Lovely tune though.

Thank you for the information Carolean, I didnt know that.

Beautiful music & words & a great photo to go with them. Thanks David.
