There always seems to be more land disappearing from around the village like so many other villages greedy developers have their eyes on land they can built on. After finishing one development they long to get on with another on the pretence of housing for people to buy. The Councils are no better rubbing their hands with glee with the exception of development money and council taxes. The developers of East End Farm had already planed the next one before the one they were building had finished with planning going in. Panning was passed and the land south of the farm was next.

This week the Church Explorer visits St Laurence Eynsham, a church that is built beside where Eynsham Abbey used to be, visit the link to see the church. Tomorrow is Psalm Sunday where Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a Donkey and the people waved psalms at him. In church you are given a psalm cross to keep for a year. I was reminded of the day while out for a walk today and passing the retired school teachers house who has the cabinet with the teddy display. To one side is a smaller one with another display, this one had the Psalm Sunday scene I thought that this would be a more apt photo for today.

The Magnolia Flower
This week a change from wandering around village roads. I thought it was time to look in the garden again and to start with a Magnolia we have growing outside the door. I noticed it was starting to bud so thought I take the various stages of it flowering.
A little more coming out
With more on the tree flowering as well

Never one for missing Skywatch if I can help it I look for inspiration in the clouds from my Garden and have to say I am rarely disappointed
Walking out the Saturday after posting I looked at the fluffy clouds and went back for my Phone
They looked like big cotton wool puffs
To the south the sun was at least behind the clouds allowing a photo of the cloud
