sun, reed bed


Sunny today! It even felt hot in the shade, though the relentless north east wind continues.

Taking a few days off.

This reed bed is grown for thatching. Thatched houses used to be very common in our part of west Oxfordshire in Victorian times and earlier. While there are still quite a few thatched houses, the majority were tiled during the last century.
