36: Love Is

What is love, if not that feeling of elation experienced is one heeds the ‘stop’ sign for a moment (or lots of moments) and notices …


… notices, the contrasting colours in the land where we stand?


The flowers in our hedgerows:

Love in Sudbury’s Hedgerows

The leaves at our feet:

Bird’s-Eye View of Pavement in Chilton

The homes of our little folks:

Fungi on the Borders of People’s Park

And even the scars on our trees.

Injured Trees in Chilton (presumably by local council decree!)

Love is where love is – and nurtured for free by the People.*

The Boundary Flowers of  People’s Park

Even in the tiny bits of land that we call our gardens.

What is a Day Job, if it shuts us up inside blocks of concrete, keeps out the light, and stops us from landing?

*People’s Park, in Sudbury, was willed to Babergh Council for the sole purpose of being home to a People’s Hospital. Barbergh sold the land to an umimaginative developer; hence, it is now boasts a non-descript housing estate, albeit with some very attractive wild flowers on its border.

N.B. Sadly, Babergh are now also looking to make a profit from the redevelopment of one of Sudbury’s most iconic buildings, Belle Vue House, the centrepiece of Sudbury’s Belle Vue Park.

Today, the Suffolk Mercury newspaper, sported an interesting front-page story. Now, I do wonder about the source? Hmmmm!
