What I’m listening to – Mandolin Orange HERE I love their style.
For ages i’ve been keeping my eye on the field a few houses down the road. It’s a large field that often lies fallow, some years it has had rape growing and some years just weedy stuff. This year it has wheat or barley I’m not sure which and I have discovered that I love this field
The texture and colour.
The way it rustles and moves.
I just want to pick an ear and pull all of it off the stem and watch it fly in the breeze.
This field goes on and on and you can see the Quantock Hills in the distance. My village has one foot in the town and one in the country, just how I like it.
“Oats. A grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people.”
― Samuel Johnson
P.S. I know it’s not oats but I loved the quote !
