Granny’s Song, Christmas Bauble and New Growth

This morning on Radio 4, I heard the hymn, ‘Now the Day  is Over’ being sung.  It was  both a tearful moment and a beautiful memory at the same time as my Granny, who lived with us in Birmingham for about a year when I was 5, sang this to me every night at bedtime. She often sang it in Welsh – Nawr bod y diwrnod wedi dod i ben.  This is the best recording of the right tune that I can find. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrDkI0yzzAo

Along the lane by St Euny Churchyard, Mr Smith noticed a Christmas bauble. It took me a few moments to find it. Then it made me smile, wondering how it had ended up there.

Spot the bauble!

The 40 minute walk up the lane and along the Flat lode at the back of our house is always a satisfying one to do. It was good to see some new colourful growth on a Sycamore.
