The Nicest Season For One To Die

Posted Wednesday 5th August 2009 at 03:02 by Francis Duggan
The nicest Season for one to die must surely be the Spring
When the Parklands wear their Wildflowers and song birds pipe and sing
And young birds are chirping in their nests and the sparrows all the day
Are busy under the house eaves weaving their nests of hay.

If I'm not burned to ashes then why not bury me
In that old graveyard on the hill preferably by a tree
Where in Spring birds will build their nest and sing their songs above where I lay...

Just a quick note to mention a wonderful sight on Friday afternoon.

I made the most of a rare sunny day this summer and took the afternoon off work and headed straight down to Littlehampton and walked over to West Beach.

As I got to the beach, I noticed a few sand martins flying near me. Thinking there were only about a dozen there, I trained my binoculars along the length of the sand dunes to see that the place was swarming with them! I started walking along...

Area Four

Posted Monday 3rd August 2009 at 03:49 by FlushUnderFoot
"Area 4: Fishing" reads the sign at the parking lot entrance. Itís a little piece of Lums Pond State Park in Delaware. Tall reeds grow right on the edge of the water. Between the parking lot and the water is a wide open area with some trees and a pavilion. Picnic benches are scattered everywhere and on weekends so are people. On either side of the opening lies deciduous forest, and in it a trail that loops around the pond.

I've been coming here on a daily basis for about...
