Meadowland

Matthew sent his man into the fields with a strimmer yesterday and had him cut down all the young saplings.  Woodland, he explains, is worth less than meadowland.

According to the National Trust, Britain has lost 97% of its meadowland since the war. Isn't that frightful!

I took a folding chair into the field this afternoon and sat and read a book (and took a nap) head high in grasses and buttercups.
