All Alone…….

Buster wants to know where all his Friends have gone…..

It is strange times…. Buster and I are lucky, we do have somewhere very special to take our daily exercise.  Social Distancing is one thing but walking through our park and woodlands is now a very lonely thing… it takes some getting used to.

Lakeside does attract more folk. But move away and head up the meadow to the venerable Furlong Oak and on up into the woods, its a different atmosphere….. its as if the world has stopped.

Bluebells continue to give extra pleasure to the mornings walk.  They may not be as expansive as those in the image posted early this morning (that was last year – the location is a tad too far for the current travel restrictions) none the less these smaller displays are just as attractive.

It is getting darker in the woodland, the leaf cover is getting thicker each day.

I know we have to stay at home.  I also know that we are allowed out for exercise.  So it does seem strange that here we have so much space and yet so few folk take advantage of the opportunity.

At least this cyclist was enjoying the space and fresh air….like me he was quietly taking the time to listen to the multitude of Bird Song in this otherwise quiet world

Spring continues……. It’s Bluebell Time

Spring-Wood-19

Bluebells in the very aptly named Spring Wood on the Derbyshire Leicestershire border.

Bluebells are only with us for a short spell each spring, once the tree canopy of leaves darkens the woodland floor, they will retreat till next spring…   but whilst they are here the do cast their spell of spring magic  🙂

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
