meadow of buttercups

Meare fish house

Enjoying the glorious sunshine and intense blue skies in Somerset.  There is something about a quintessential buttercup meadow.  When the sun shines in summer in England it really is paradisiacal.  A toad even jumped onto our delicious raw cake.
This village is deeply historical and also surprisingly quiet. Meare fish house is where the Glastonbury Abbey monks of old based themselves for fishing on the lake that was here then, this area on the Somerset Levels is known as the Lakes.  It was later drained for agriculture but in the winter the land still floods and the lakes reappear.
