I drive past this hedgerow nearly every day. It has always intrigued me because of its uniformity of height and size. More because of its scale, stretching all the way across the concession from one road to the next for a mile. A mile. At some time a farmer made the time and expense and sweat equity to plant this living fence, this living wall. I honour that fellow for taking on and completing such a huge task. This wall breaks the wind, settles blowing snow and soil, adds beauty and colour, provides habitat, made for a good subject.
At the time I did not realize that a cardinal was in the frame. Look just above and to the left of my copyright.
