In this instance it's the river Mimram which runs past our house....Chalk Streams, few people I suspect who walk by one do not stop and gaze into their crystal clear waters and watch the long flowing weeds dancing in the current, some even may be fascinated from a young age wondering what might be hiding beneath, like a brightly speckled trout. Few I suspect know that Chalk Streams are extremely rare in the world, rarer even than existing rain forests.

Growing up in Scotland these plates were very popular in our grandparents houses... we even visited Rabbie Burns cottage once tooThis is a treasured plate given to my mother when she was a young girl, married at 18. Not sure how she acquired it because she had an Irish mother, but guessing it was because she married my dad who had strong links to Scotland. Have no idea how old it is.
