Beneath a  canopy of hazel,
We wondered how old this ancient yew tree might be. A 1000 years at least I thought although it could be more.

On the chalk downland the view opens out. We are on the North Downs way looking across to the next range of hills.

At our feet the chalk downland is a tapestry of flowers including bird's foot trefoil [Lotus corniculatus] and horseshoe vetch [Hippocrepis comosa].

Crops are ripening in the summer sunshine.
Crops are ripening in the summer sunshine,
And haveyou ever seen so many flowering peas?

Back home the strawberry season is almost over
Back home the strawberry season is almost over,
And the garden is taking my breath away.
And the garden has reached its midsummer peak.
It has been a beautiful day.
It has been a beautiful day.
