Thursday walk

A good bright day for our walk today, with a cold wind, but in sheltered spots we could feel the heat of the sun.  The dogs and I walked between lovely old established hedgerows of beech, holly, hawthorn and elderberry, interspersed with ash.  Hedges like these are real treasures.
Long awaited may blossom is just beginning to come out now.
Walking on into more open country, splashes of colour are beginning to show with red campion, golden gorse, and vivid blue alkanet - Anchusa officinalis.   
I can't record the flowers of Maytime without including wild cherry.  Simple, beautiful blossoms, and one of my favourites.


  1. I can smell the air, fresh and clean and the wafts of blossom! So envious at this moment! Would love a long walk with you, a huge long chat and a very large piece of cake 🍰 and a cup of tea ☕️ ❤️

    1. Wouldn't that be good! One of these fine days we will manage that. I'll bring the cake! Have a lovely weekend. Love A x
