Lords and Ladies

.

Walking the lane north from Kelling Village to the quags I noticed the hedgerow had been cut back and the ditch cleaned out. The water was running faster here than I’d seen it in many years. I’m not sure if it was the better drainage or the light that was now entering the lane but we were treated to the best spring display of Cuckoo Pints than I have seen in a long time.

A splash of Red

When Turner was painting he would often add a splash of red to break up a green and otherwise monotonous landscape. Red and green being at the opposite ends of the spectrum wheel the two colours complement one another.

It was one of those junctions where you have to look back hard over your shoulder for oncoming traffic. It was whilst craning my neck that I saw a flash of red in the hedge bottom. I pulled over to investigate.

It was the Lords and Ladies Berries that had caught my eye. When we started to look there were so many. The vivid red added a touch of colour to brighten the autumn day.
