‘Ah,’ said the knowledgeable countryman, a visitor to my studio, ‘chalk down-lands, eh?’ I said nothing. He went on: ‘In which case, those trees shouldn’t be there. Wrong sort of soil for that sort of tree.’ I remained silent. He looked again. ‘Ah-ha, not chalk, snow! I hadn’t noticed the snow on the fence posts. Well, in that case the trees are okay. You can leave them. There’s nothing wrong with them.’ People, as someone once said, often see what they know, not what they’re looking at.
