I wish I could remember where this quote came from, I think it might be one of  Tich Naht Hanh’s

…..walk from Stinsford Church

Following the path alongside the river

I love the way the trees form an arch and the way the winter sun slants in to light the way

ooo00000 those reflections – they always get me, and I just have to stop and look, and watch the light play on the surface of the water

and when I can bring myself to leave, we head back cross the water meadows

 

under a clear blue sky

past quintessential thatched cottages and grazing swans

It must be because gardening takes up so much time in other seasons.                                                                     You can see the beginning of the walk here.
