Letter from the far West Coast

By - Michael Viney

Perhaps this will change now that grass keeps on growing almost right through the winter; so much else is changing, after all. My neighbours' early-morning inspection of the ewes, once a fairly leisurely round, is now an urgent tour squeezed in before the drive to work at distant buildling sites and factories."
