If I were a Buddhist I think that I would probably have been a Goldfinch in a previous life........

......... because I just love the colour and texture of Phragmite reed beds, Bulrushes and Teasels that are such an important food source for Goldfinches and other birds.

Reed beds change with the seasons, in the depths of winter they can be inhospitable, unwelcoming and cold, very cold. 

In Spring and Summer they are warm living environments abounding with summer migrants, In all cases they enrich this countryside of ours. 

Lovely complimentary  '' hard and soft '' contrast between the Teasels and the barbed wire
