My dad Alan who passed peacefully to broader horizons in the early hours of this morning .An avid bell ringer all his life.We are blessed to have the last bell he rung and we hope it will be hanging in our chapel tower sometime in the next few months.
Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne
“We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real...and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists. (295)”

“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
The bulbs are out in abundance , just tidying up around the site at the moment getting ready for Easter
Not sure if the hen cackled much for this one on the right , it's about the size of a large marble ! , we are grateful she tried ..
