Furrowed skies

A couple of summers ago, we visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum

In Sussex, England.

Pretty Elizabethan houses glowed under a big blue sky

Big sky

And a newly-ploughed field (with a thatched hut in it)

Matched the ploughed furrows of a dramatic sky.

I‘ve got a family emergency and am off to England again. I’ll be back next week.

Until then – take care!
