Not a bad way to start the weekend….


Saturday, sunshine and a warm breeze. Bluebells where a key feature in the mornings walk, they just added that special spring touch. The location was South Derbyshire and Calke woods. Rather fine well-established Oak Trees, with Beech and Chestnut, even some Pine for added variety. Wildflowers and Herbs starting to make their mark on spring, and Bird Song everywhere. A morning full of promise…that actually fulfilled its promise..

Nor would we dream of leaving Calke Woods without paying our respects to the ancient “Old Man of Calke”… this grand old Oak, well over a 1000 years has survived another winter, ready and able to join in the Spring renaissance.


Not a bad start to the weekend…. but fun over its back to the gardening 🙂

Relaxing, out and about, or gardening, as always……

Please Remember ….

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