The best of ingredients

Yesterday I happened upon the recipe for a brilliant walk.

A lovely grassy track, leading uphill with the promise of good views at the top.
Beautiful old stone walls.
A vast cabbage field.  Give me proper cabbages as a decorative plant any day.  I have an aversion to the decorative ones which come as bedding plants.
Wonderful views all round, even on a murky afternoon.
A field full of lapwings, together with a flying display.
An orchard, with rosy apples and a beehive.
Damson trees, with accessible fruit for scrumping!

All these things added up to the most enjoyable walk I have had in a long time.

  1. Wow, lapwings too! You really seem to have an incredible area of arable land that doesn't put off wildlife.
