Church Farm Ardeley

A Free Range Experience

Tyler by Day and Night

The tiny robin looked around for breakfast and found some berries.  Wary of the kite above and the pig below he pecked at the fruit before chirping his way off into the fields for hours of play upon the breeze.  Hopping from tree to tree, from ash to oak he spotted his oddball friend the white bluebell amongst its more homogenous (same) brothers and sisters.

We can’t all be the same he thought and admired the will of the flower to be different.  More fields of wild flowers to explore and admire, bees within and around them and acres of blue sky to dive into.

With little mouths to feed and nests to repair he couldn’t play all day but remembering Jonathan Livingston Seagull (Richard Bach) he knew it was a good use of some of his time.

The big ball in the sky was falling and the smaller one coming over and it was time to tuck his head under his wing and rest.

Tyler has just completed his time on the farm and these photos are a testimony to his love of nature, his own quiet nature and the peace we can sometimes find around us amidst the noise and haste. (Desirderata).
