We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children

This week has brought a week of beautiful sunrises. Early morning is my favourite time of the day, when the house is still, the birds have started to sing and the sun is rising. It’s the time of least distraction in the day. There were some particular beautiful sunrises over the farm this week, I captured one below.  Beautiful mornings like this remind me of the phrase, (apparently attributed to Oscar Wilde) .

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children"

Hope everyone has a lovely week and gets to enjoy a sunrise.
