Renewal – A Photo

Last week on my visit to Felbrigg Hall in North Norfolk, we walked around the gardens and woodland, and by happenstance came through the Victory V path, a beautiful arrangement of trees planted to commemorate VE Day, and in memory of his brother by the Squire, Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer in the late 1940s.

On a sunny November afternoon it was the perfect combination of autumnal colours, of russets, greens, browns and orange.  There was satisfaction in kicking through the leaves underfoot and in remarking on the enduring nature of the memorial built into the landscape which retains the power to make one pause to both admire its symmetry and the work that went into its creation.

Soon the branches will be completely bare and the leaves will rot into the earth, but next Spring the cycle of growth and colour will begin again, so I offer this as an image of renewal for Remembrance Sunday
