The village Nature Area is filling out and developing well. Walking around it is a delight. There is always something new, some changes from the previous visit. There is something deeply zen about the place. I usually have it to myself which makes it seem special. Peaceful if you can discount the traffic from the adjacent road. You soon learn to cut the noise out (a bit like when planes to and fro Heathrow continually fly over Kew Gardens). Being here gives me the same kind of feeling that I used to get from visiting a beach early in the morning or in the middle of winter when nobody else is around. Peeping through the boundary trees you can see the fields of swaying barley that lie just outside, and glimpse copses of trees where no one goes but the deer.
