This is a scene that is no more.
The second photo is of the same place by the River Anglin where now poplar trees have been razed.
I am sure regeneration will occur but to see devastation was yet another sad blow to the year 2010.
OUT OF CHAOS WILL COME ORDER
SO THAT BEAUTY WILL EMERGE
FOR WHEREVER THERE IS HOPE THERE IS ALWAYS NEW LIFE
MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO IN THE MAGDALENIAN AGE
DIFFERENT TREES PROVIDED SHELTER
IN JUST A FEW YEARS TIME NEW PEOPLE
WILL EXPERIENCE THE SHADE OF YOUNG TREES.
WHOEVER YOU ARE AND WHEREVER YOU MAY BE
WE WISH YOU WELL FOR TODAY
AND FOR ALL THE DAYS AND MORROWS OF 2011
LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF
with all best wishes for a
H A PP Y N E W Y E A R
much love from SweetpeainFrance
