Our First Woodland Walk of the Autumn – Part Three

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!

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.

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.
