Aches and pains

... after doing the lightest work back at the farm.

A great day yesterday - Cris, Oana and Lucas (Cris's brother) dragged me back to 'Wild Pig Forest' to clean up - which they did whilst I pottered and pretended.

Place hasn't looked too good recently - what with break-ins, weather and resident spiders.

Now liveable again.

But the real kick was just being there - cuckoo in full annoyance, nettles raising their heads and bumps, road rendered prat-fallable after the slightest of showers.

And being with people I love doing something with a visible result - the cleaned and cleared black-current bushes say more than a thousand rich gifts.

A much too rich, rather fine white wine helped, of course.

One tiny little aspect was not mentioned....we discovered that the Querkus Robur Tree(english oak), planted approx 5 years ago, it is alive and kicking we marked the place not to loose it again in the tall grass...

... that there's some corner of a foreign field, that is forever ...

(Don't forget - the place to place my earthly remains, under the bows of a spreading English Oak.)
