A Walk in the Park – along the River Bank.

A river wanders through the parkland at the National Trust’s Attingham Park, sometimes in viscous flood, sometimes in slow motion. Today it was slow and cold.

The view from the suspension bridge.
Berberis with its red berries hangs down towards the water.
Sheer power!
Willow weeping tears into the river.
Gentle side stream.
Last year's teasels still standing strong.
Alder cones and catkins.
Old Burrs overhang the grey water surface.
A swan at her ablutions.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
