Z is For...


...Z SHAPED (and zoom)

I've reached the final day of the A-Z April Blog Challenge. It has been great fun, and thank you for joining me!
I do hope you have enjoyed the various posts I've put here during the month of April. As you have probably realised, I love my home here in Devon - to the extent that I still have a few tears occasionally when I walk down the lane and look across and see our house, or I sit on my bench in our top field and gaze at the view. Words cannot express the love I have for 'Windfall Farm'




So let me share with you what I am so grateful to have... and as I said in my G is for Ghosts post, I am well aware that the house and the land is not mine.... but I belong to the house and the land as a temporary caretaker.


The land is - very conveniently for this blog challenge  - sort of Z shaped!
Let's start with the left-to-right - this bit of the Z...

The Orchard is north-facing behind the house running west to east:







At the front of the house, the front garden and the lane beside it form the downward stroke of the Z (although actually it is a bit straighter perhaps more of  l than a / )

The garden runs north to south







 the lane  runs parallel with the front garden

left-hand side looking UP the lane
looking DOWN the lane
 at the top of the lane we have the bottom bit of the Z : the _
 This is our fields, Bottom Field, Middle Field and Top Field

 So Bottom Field and Middle Field:

Y is For



....YELLOW

The penultimate post for the A-Z April Blog Challenge 

Yellow is such a warm, colour



I once heard a saying about a blind person picturing colours as feelings
I think of yellow as: sun on your face, butter melting on hot crumpets or toast, a spring or summer's day. 
Yellow is rich in love, a hug, a smile, a friend...

But no more words, just pictures...
