With spring now well and truly underway, the countryside is full of new life and growth. Cheerful longer and brighter days encourage exploring the wonderful Suffolk countryside.

Poem by Richard Maslen:
Field Machines

Field Machines

Voices stilled, work done,
They stand
Sulking in the field,
Summer fret
Misting their outlines.

Cut swathes baled.
Red-gold grasses
Gone from the land.

Soon,
The inexorable year begins again;
Sheep dotting the field,
Ram busy begetting his future.

Baler,
Autumnal and still,
Re-grouping, ready.
