Ripening barley at Gander Down

I made a diversion, during a car journey yesterday, down one of my favourite lanes at Gander Down, on the Hampshire chalk.

The sky was an ethereal blue, with shining white, low cumulus cloud and, higher, finely drawn cirrus clouds.

Several Skylarks were singing their hearts out, one at great altitude. Wondrously uplifting.

“Oh skylark
Have you seen a valley green with spring?
Where my heart can go a journeying…”
