Mystery Bushes

We walk slowly in the long, dark grass the sun sparkled in my eyes taking me to the most amazing site I have ever seen. I run frantically back to tell James and Niamh to come and see the most glamorous place in my world. My feet crunched along the ground. We see the trees swaying lightly in the moonlight. Then I have an idea to create some hammocks. The aroma of horse poo pushes me back. This is just some bushes to some people but to me this is what life is all about.
