Field Study's Man in E17 will have to content himself with his diminutive, pickled mind until the medlar tree fruits to provide him with a greater, better endowed imagination with which to recount the awesome journey he made through the sub forests of rhubarb and couch grass to arrive at the Merton Joy apple tree. He climbed and explored the tree and, he would have me believe, rode an ant into the depths of one of the tree's many flowering parts - well beyond the outermost whorls of his recall into the heart of ultra violet darkness. I hovered over and around the forest like a search and rescue mosquito looking out for the intrepid little field student. I lost him but he found me back in E17.
After such a bagatelle more sensible supporting information to the pictures might, we thought, be appreciated.
