When I read other people's blogs, I love to see little snippets of their lives, scattered in among the other posts. It's always fascinating to see other places, and how location can shape your life...today I would like to invite you to share my morning walk. Got your sturdy shoes? Let's go!
First we go out of my back gate and walk along the first dyke.
Admire the bouquets of wildflowers along the way!
Cross the little bridge.
Skirt the beanfield.
As we walk, we disturb all kinds of birds and insects. Doves coo, pigeons clatter out of trees, tiny siskins flitter in a group. At other times of year, we might see duck, egret, heron or many other small commoner species. Butterflies of many hues and shiny blue and brown dragonflies can be found everywhere, as can bees and flies of all types. It's not as quiet as you think in the field!
Many small flowers flourish in the margins of the field.
Even on ground as dry as this.
We are bordered by blackberry, elderberry and rosehip scrambling together to form a rough but bountiful hedge.
Back through the beanfield. Almost home! I will make you a cool drink.
What did I discover from my walk today?
Many treasures more precious than jewels...and...I need a sunhat and a spare skirt. Brambles can be unkind!
More sewing to come!
'til next time!
