Blea Tarn in the English Lake District lies on the hill road between the two valleys of Great and Little Langdale. At this time of year the bracken is dead and brown, and there is a beautiful air of bleakness and austerity about the scene. A little later in the year the new green fronds of the bracken will tranform the color of the place. Then the visitors will return in large numbers, many unaware that they have missed seeing the area in one of its most beautiful aspects.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
