A Winter Walk

Monday, December 23rd 2019

At this time of year there are no flowers or bugs or beasties to distract you when you walk around.  An opportunity to look for other things. 

Reflections in the still water, when photographed and downloaded, make you wonder which is the correct way up!

Sometimes the breeze blows just at the wrong time!

Water droplets made the trees look as though they were decorated with tiny baubles, so there are plenty of droplets hanging around. 

Most fungi have finished fruiting and have decayed, but there are still some to be found.

The Hazel tree that opens its catkins first has already started to do so, so a close watch will be kept to see when the first female flower opens.

At the end of the walk, a pink sky.
