Our harvest is IN.

Fields of grass cut for winter feed.

White Heather for good luck!

I found this littP1020012le clump of white heather on my walk in Slaley Forest with Barley the dog yesterday. Folk law says it will bring you good luck, all I know is that I was lucky to see it as it is not a common occurrence and I have never found it  in the wild before.
