Petworth Park on a misty Autumn Morning
I was up at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning, eager to be the first person into Petworth Park as they opened the gates at 8 o’clock. Here’s a photo of the boathouse on the Upper Pond.
My son Nathan described the field as ‘a giants bed’ because viewed from a distance it looks like a huge stripey bed-sheet. I love the fact that children see things that grown-ups pass by!
Fleece is used in farming to protect crops from frost and cold temperatures. It stops young plants from getting ‘bitten’ by frost, and keeps soil temperatures up during the daytime when the sun shines.
