A Norfolk Sky..

This is the opening line of a song I wrote many years ago and wherever I went it was a song that was always requested. It's called 'Blakeney', the name of the place where I live. I wrote it for my then husband, a man who loves that place more than anyone I know.

This picture shows part of the marsh, looking towards the sea, where the sea lavender grows.
Painters come here to view and paint our big Norfolk skies, where the sea birds swoop down on you. And in the quiet, you can hear the skylark and she flies high to lead you away from her nest.
I added the child, a freebie from Ms. Bailey on Flickr.
She reminded me of how we used to wander over the marshes, climb on the old boat and be safe and happy.
Ahhhh........the memories....

I love the scene of the marshes, June. Sounds like you have fond memories of times playing in them. Beautiful piece with the addition of the little girl.

I would so love to visit a beautiful place like that. I love lavender, and would love to see lavender fields.
