We begin part three just as we draw close to the lake itself. The trees dripped with more moss and the fungi seemed to get more colourful.

We reached the lakeside where we found the calm surface created the clearest of reflections.

Our return journey along the woodland path afforded us glimpses of the hills that surround the lake and its wooded fringes.

So our memories of this lovely woodland walk have helped us escape the wild, wet and windy days of January. Now we can look forward to a warmer and brighter spring leading to an even warmer and even brighter summer!

  1. Nice walk – love the moss. Of course, this time of year I love most anything that is green and not white. 🙂

  2. You’ve captured the essence of your outing, and the dripping branches are a lovely depiction of nature. Really like the fence. Looks as though it’s a place one would want to go back and see the changing landscape.
