Fields of Dreams….. …….or, more accurately Fields of Grass where you can dream if you feel like it. Dream on! I liked the symmetry of this field on a local walk: I looked for ages for this particular view of hay rolls and found it on a trip down the Ayrshire coast: This field is on Gibraltar Point Farm, the starting point for a favourite … Continue reading Fields of Dreams
