Cutting Brambles

I did a blog recently about optimism. Well yesterday I watched our neighbour Mr Davies working on his smallholding. I wouldn’t put an age on him but he isn’t that youthful.

He is often out on his land with a roll up hanging from his lip and flat cap down over his brow. Then he sets to on a 2-acre field with a hand scythe. The field is more like a jungle with overgrown hedges that are really trees and brambles in clumps the size of houses. After 2 hours it is difficult to see any progress but there he is still cutting away I guess that is real optimism.

I only hope I am that active at his age. I have in cluded a little sketch above.
