We had a smashing walk in the woods this morning.
As part of our ‘getting back to the routine’ we decided to take the long route down to the bottom and then pick up the inner track before making our way back to the car.
In our efforts to avoid the multitude of doggy souvenirs (there are no bins here, and although some people clear up after their pets, most don’t) we were intrigued to notice several small particles of a blue ‘something or other’ scattered along the pathway. They varied in size and frequency, but as we progressed, we felt like Hansel and Gretel following a trail of candy breadcrumbs.
They didn’t lead us anywhere in particular which was a little disappointing. Then suddenly, these blue fragments were replaced with purple, and then green.
We wondered if we’d come across yellow or red, but were pretty soon back to blue.
Eventually the mystery was solved as we discovered the remains ‘dead’ in the undergrowth.
