The brook by happypat

The brook

On my walk the other day I really liked the way these reed type grasses followed the line of the brook that feeds into the river Wyre.
This brook was the boundary to our fields when we were farming. Our Farmhouse is behind the trees in the distance.

Three good things:
1. All Christmas decorations down & back in the attic.
2. We went to check out a car for a friend this afternoon. She saw it online & asked us to go & look at its condition before they sent it down to Reading for her. Harry told her not to touch it with a barge pole! It had obviously had a bump!
3. I finished a really good book this morning, had a lie in to finish it especially!
same here, no decs left. Nice place for a walk...I was lazy, didn't leave the house today. Back to work tomorrow and I have the back to work blues...I don't want to go.

@huvesaker No I don’t blame you Boo, cosy at home & not easy to up your game to go back to work. You will be ok once you get back into it. I have been getting house ready for B&B again, they are back tomorrow night but I like to see them, two in this week & a cousin staying on Thursday night. We like the company.

A nice sweeping curve for this tiny stream. The grasses all look dead but perhaps that's their natural colour. Your house is a long way away - this must be a good walk!

Great leading lines.. Do you have to do riparian planting along the stream and waterways?..

A lovely scene, a great curves flowing through the shot

@julzmaioro No we do t Julz, I actually had to look up on googlewhar repairian planting was! Our land would finish at the fence but the Enviramental Agency is supposed to look after all that but don’t!!

Love the meander of the tiny stream working it way through the fields and the grasses certainly makes it stand out for all to see !

Wonderful curving line. I’ve done all my Christmas but my memory tree. Everything else is put away. I will do it tomorrow.

Love the curving lines of the creek bed and the way the grasses fill it in.
Your farmland is so much different than ours ... not an inch wasted along the banks of the creek!
Like Julia @julzmaioro , we quite often leave a good ten feet along both sides for a wildlife corridor. Sometimes it is planted to trees, sometimes to wildflowers for the bees and butterflies, and sometimes just to grass.

Leading lines meandering through the shot.

@farmreporter in the actual fields we also used to leave a good gap when ploughing etc, it’s one of the requirements for the basic stewardship grant although I’m not sure if farmers even receive that these days, good for wild life etc. These fields are just grass so go right to the fence boundary, over the fence up to the brook is not the farmers decision, the environment agency is supposed to deal with river banks etc. On this bank they are actually looking for badger sets at the moment. @julzmaioro

That is so good to know! Of course, with the centuries more of farming than us - you would have it down pat!

Gorgeous

I love that zig-zag shape of the reeds. Lovely rural capture which obviously holds lots of memories for you.

Wonderful work using the natural grasses as leading line.
