Taken this morning in beautiful conditions in Bedgebury. Comments and criticisms are very welcome.
Thank you for your response to Hyacinth - I was overwhelmed by the response - and a big thank you to Pollisher for the UA, which I was thrilled to receive.
I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day.
