lake hedgerow autumn colour

a last day of Summer mid Autumn

October 27, 2018

Autumn, October, getting nippy, full of blue skies, mosiac colour and those dancing leaves. Yesterday, on the woodland path edging the lake, I spotted a nest of….Harebells! Incredible. They didnt appear for ages this year with all that ferocious heat and drought, and now 3 or 4 of them tucked in at the foot of […]

Woodland Walk – the warm, sunny season

August 31, 2017

The ancient woodland lying in a long narrow strip against the lakeshore is flood-prone (or you could just say it gets drowned every year) and thick with Ash, Alder and Birch; hardy regenerating types.
