This is a special for my great friend Karen, (@wildelycreative ) who bivvies in this wood when she can, but it’s been ages now…(and with apologies to the real Walker.)
This is the other side of that gate into the woods:
There are not many flowers out yet. The pleasures are subtle – Karen is good at subtle.
Moss – and bark:
Anyone like deer and squirrels?
We have got fed up with seeing young trees destroyed. We believe that the bigger older ones can survive the chewing so we have cleared many of the saplings to open up views of the magnificent tree trunks. I’m a sucker for a beautiful vertical.
There are some flowers, – snowdrops still holding on next to the wrecked car dumped in next door’s field.
Those are the emerging Erythonium Pagoda which will shortly fill the woods – Charles adds 50 every year. (more when we’re feeling rich).
More bark for those who love trees.
But if you get bored..
And maybe you are bored now. Could come back when the erythoniums are out.. or the bluebells…
