Friday, April 13

let's go for a little walk ...

i was feeling restless the other day and couldn't really settle to anything in particular.

not wanting to spend the whole day watching tv or playing on the internet i decided to throw myself out the door, despite the drizzly rain, and get out for some fresh air. and i'm so glad i did!


i stopped to admire the view from the car park






then i went up the hill


followed the path round


over the bridge


into the trees



through the forest


behind my favourite tree, along a hidden path, and down the lane



i stopped awhile to enjoy the view







and along the way i saw (i'm not 100% sure on my flower i.d., so please feel free to correct me if i've got it wrong) ...

wood sorrel

violets


lovely rusty bits


nettles, perfect for the soup or dye pot!




lichen


horse hoof fungus


not waving, but ...


greater stitchwort


very yellow gorse


unfurling ferns


feather caught in the grass


shiny black slug


cuckoo flowers


and celandine

what better way to spend a couple of hours :)

Mother Nature has awaken. Everything's thriving. Your region is typically brilliant with blooming everywhere. All are very stunning. Daffodils are my favourite flowers.
