frosty morning, shropshire, lince, happy easter!


















Two pictures from early morning cycle ride.

Later, drove to Shropshire for a lovely family gathering.

Meanwhile, a friend has asked about the meaning of the word 'lince' as used by Edward Thomas. I don't know but perhaps Margaret Keeping does?

Belated Happy Easter!

  1. Context would help but I think it's this:
    a rising ground; a ridge; a ledge, esp. one on the side of a chalk down; an unploughed strip serving as a boundary between fields.
    Pronounced and often spelt lynch.
