|Cudham churchyard with sheep, 25 February 2012.|
The top photo is Cudham churchyard, in which those two sheep are grazing. This is a good way to manage grass length when the ground is as uneven as you see. All those small hummocks are old and overgrown ant nests.
On the edge of the recreation ground was an Alder, full of catkins that gave off clouds of yellow pollen at the touch of a finger.

Finally, a shot that probably interests only me. Most of the country gates have little stamped metal plaques like this, showing the makers' names. This one is fairly new.
