Linton .Loose.Boughton Monchelsea

An alpha male who has tumbled us
.Top right of the pic,is that scrub or old antlers??
Following force 11 gales ,it calmed down a bit and the sky was clear,so we met at Linton Church car park where fresh jam doughnuts were distributed.West along the ridge and then crossing the Coxheath road along footpaths to Loose village (Looz=PigSty in ancient English)we looked at the Yew tree in the church which David Bellamy dates as 4,000 years old.We stopped for coffee by the  stream at the foot of the hill,then under the Thomas Telford viaduct and through "little Switzerland"and then up through the strawberry tunnels to Boughton Mon,where we stopped in the churchyard to look at the Deer.Back along the ridge to the car park 6 or 7 miles,6 of us .I then visited Tovil Tip
which has a cleansing affect on my psyche.

Cox's apple trees,and the fruit was still excellent in January

This raised bed method of strawberry growing means the Polish girls don't have to bend over in the fields any more *sigh*

This is what we have to look forward to.
