Rue de Vicheries, Guernsey
by R L Tilley

Behind the sweep of Rocquaine Bay and flanking the Rue de Vicheries lay the orchid fields. The dog and I walk there morning and evening, me delighting in the painted impressionist beauty of the meadows where the orchids grow among the grasses. I imagine some Monet sitting there with easel, canvas, oils, brushes, capturing this beauty forever. I would walk here and walk here and walk here to season’s end.

There are goats in a field beside a farmhouse. Three goats and a pony graze in an adjacent field.
