More photos from our walk today

As I’ve said, the woods are spacious and there are so many tracks and pathways, sometimes you feel you’re entirely alone with nature.
We remembered this from years ago. There wasn’t so much undergrowth in front of it then and you could actually go inside. Now it’s almost hidden by brambles and the blackberries are in abundance. Being forest fruit, they are a lot smaller than you’re likely to get elsewhere, but one word of warning, don’t pick anything below waist height (think dogs).

Here is something you shouldn’t eat, puff balls. At first, I thought it was a dog’s ball in the undergrowth, but these are deadly (unless completely white inside apparently, but I wouldn’t touch one)

Dragon flies were everywhere, so I was glad to get my earlier pictures as well as these.
We needed to rest and found one of Nature’s tables.
Evidence of squirrels dining were everywhere here.
Here’s a pic of me having a breather.

The berries in the trees were a brilliant redbut this particular branch was just hanging there, as if diving into the pool of greenery below.
It was a lovely walk. Maggie would have loved it too.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Fabulous photos Di. I can see you had a wonderful time.

  2. This looks like a peaceful place to walk.

    • There is so much of it and so many different direction to go. The car park was full, but we saw maybe half a dozen or so people. On other days there could be only one other car and you seemed to meet up with them at every junction!

  4. Those puff balls look so innocent. I would have never guessed that they were deadly!
