"Shadows that the bright sun cast, remind me of the week just past.
The new cut grass on which they play, the sun so warm, my heart at bay.
Silver green leaves gently sway, beneath the blue sky, I sigh 'happy days'
Now the reflecting sun shines on the tide, oh the wonders of that love of mine - Buckthorns "
The Brumptons, Colchester 2005

Mr & Mrs Gargon, Weedon, Northampton 2004

"Buckthorns, it's a place by the sea,
Where the peace, the view and fresh air are all free,
Where time slows to a leisurely crawl,
Out of range from the rat race call.
Time to think, time to talk, time to sleep, time to walk.
Love the sunset, the seaside, the dusks and the dawns,
The pleasure is all hours, thank you Buckthorns"
Ringrose Family, Langtoft, Lincolnshire 2003
