I was Up early this morning, and took this shot of our local landscape as the very early sun broke through the clouds, just for a while. I am trying as hard a possible to fight that Friday feeling and get some plans going, we have a long weekend here with a bank holiday on Monday but must keep going, just one more day …..

    • Hello Norma πŸ™‚

      Thanks, yes the field layouts here can be a bit confusing and very interesting when you get a good view point to look at them.

      I think this came about over a long period of time, land here has changed hands back and to many times.

      On my in-laws farm the lyons family , they along with many other farmers would even names each field see: http://www.meathfieldnames.com/index.php/irish-field-names

      The link is only for co. meath, but all the county’s had this system going on, someone was trying to put a national map in place that had these old names included.

      It is great that you noticed, I am so familiar now at just looking at them!
