Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird,
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing
Fresh from the world......,

Cat Stevens

Superb Harry.
The tyre tracks in the path are deeper than 60+ years ago and the farm house neater, but the land remains the same.

I like it but it "feels" chilly! After all the snowmen and snow-filled scenes on the Christmas Cards adorning our homes, it is nice to see Christmas morning as it really was.

To the left of this photo it's all houses now but when I was a kid it was still fields and a good place to go 'Brid Neezin'.

I do like a good old fashioned well maintained fence.
