Spring walking

We have been out rambling through various favourite Nottinghamshire haunts over the last few days. Woodlands really start to come into their own at this time of year. The canopy has not yet filtered out all the light above and the floor of the forest throws out vegetative flowerings, that follow one upon the other. Each flower follows it’s order: celandine first, wood anemone next, primula, primrose and bluebell with wild garlic to follow.

Tim has been out with his trusty camera and captured these precious moments.DSC_0024

The walk yielded a number of competing skylarks in the fields either side and a lone peewit (lapwing) nesting on the ground.

This was a sea of anemones in a wash of garlic leaves,  the scent from which was very heady.

    Hello! I didn’t know you had a new blog – so needless to say how glad I am to follow it.
    This walk seems to have been fantastic – I adore the different nuances of spring green and all those tender flowers, following patiently their order to bloom.
    Hope you are well, have a lovely Easter Holiday!:)

    1. Hi,
      This one is a joint blog with my husband (Tim of the camera and ceramics). I am finding WordPress slightly more flexible than Blogger; so am moving most things over here. Lovely to hear from you here. I hope you are well.

    Thanks, I’m having a rest now from a recent theatre project – you can read about it in my last post.
