I thought I might share with you my journey home from work. I have a 20 minute drive each day and it is divided into 2 parts really. The motorway bit and then the country bit, which is my favourite. In the morning it is purely about getting there and so I choose the main roads mostly with a junction to junction run on the busy M20. The pleasure is coming home again, past the same junction to junction and then up the hill and onto a single track country lane. I slow down and savour the view, hear the skylarks and calm descends on me.
Around this steep bend I go...and there is the prettiest of lanes, a mass of flowers at the moment, quite breathtaking.
Corn cockles are one of my absolute favourite hedgerow plants, the colour is gorgeous.
Another favourite of mine is the Hawthorn, at this time of year wearing her fabulous spring collection, which will be replaced with a multitude of small glossy red berries in the autumn to help feed the hungry birds.
And so we continue, taking in the bird song and the summer breeze through the open window. This green tunnel is the start of the home straight. Here is gets a bit dodgy as the fields on the left are full of rabbits with no road sense sadly. They literally throw themselves in the path of oncoming cars, who nine times out of ten are not country dwellers and so drive too fast. I counted 3 little bodies today.
Half way down the hill we can see St Anthony's church, our cottage is behind it on the hill.
The perfect end to the day and almost worth going to work for (well maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration!) The only thing to mar it is the total disrespect of a few individuals who care nothing for their surroundings!!
WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT??? GRRRRR!!!!!
