 out riding the Mendip hills in the lovely summer sun.(It is breezy up here on blackdown).The bracken has now grown and is hiding the path to top and in between the wild flowers grow.As we reach the top the Exmoor ponies are all standing on the trig(.to get the breeze I guess).we ride the what is normally a boggy path in winter across the top and I see drifts of white cotton ,bog grass,not normally noticable and indeed as the poem says...beware.For here in winter it is very deep pools of mud and you can not cross it,even now you can not as its very rutty,but it looks so beautifull drifting across moorland and in the distance you see Brent knoll an old volcanic hill standing out in bridgewater flats.
