Wake up and smell the blue­bells

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

WITH farm­ers fac­ing un­cer­tain times ahead—in­ter­est rates, wheat prices, plus the un­men­tion­able ‘B’ word—they have ev­ery rea­son to feel wor­ried about the fu­ture. As a farmer’s wife of 40 years, I have seen the good times and the bad. To­day, how­ever, was a glo­ri­ous day: the sun shone and I took my hus­band to our eight-acre wood to see the blue­bells (right), which are truly a sight to lift the heart. The scent in the 5pm sun was over­whelm­ing, mak­ing the grump­i­est farmer and his wife very glad to be liv­ing in this won­der­ful coun­try of ours, re­gard­less of the bad times. Sue Mor­ris, Glouces­ter­shire
