I'm sure I look as if I'm just wandering slowly around Coombe Wood (carefully so as not to jar my back - just had MRI results - prolapsed and torn disc) but inside I'm dancing. There's always something different to notice and it doesn't matter what state of mind I'm in before I get there, while I'm there my mood lifts. (There must be something in the last sentence that could be used for the beginnings of our art group project on mood.)
This morning was dull and grey while I waited for a parcel delivery but as soon as I was able to go out the sky very kindly turned blue.
|Magnolia buds against the blue sky|
|Spring bulbs pushing their way up into the sunshine|
|Bronze papery Golden Rain Tree pods shining against the blue sky|
|Grasses in the newly planted prairie bed|
|I love the snowdrops|
|The explosion of spores from this puffball must |
have been very powerful to create a hole like that at the top
|Very short pastel coloured irises|
|Iris tubers beginning to shoot|
- looks like a frog or a crab with some legs missing
|Moss in the sunshine|
|In a few months this wall will be covered with foliage and flowers|
It was a real bonus to enjoy a walk in the sunshine.
Thank you very much for joining me.
