Simply Beautiful – 19

The woodland walk at Attingham Hall Park is one of our favourites and we walk it several time each year.

What a surprise this was! As we wandered along a bark chip path at Attingham Park Jude noticed water in the bowl of an old Beech tree. Closer examination revealed a tiny pond with crisp reflections of the upper branches of the Beech. Simple and beautiful! Simply beautiful!

 

I imagine that this mini-pond has an important role to play in the ecosystem of the wood, attracting tiny water creatures, providing a bathing place for birds and a drinking place for wildlife.

    A moment of beauty – the world reflected in a few feet. We have had so much rain since October and so I guess there are many small changes to look out for.

  3. I love little pools like this and with all the rain we are getting there are so many more to discover Graham. One day I hope to find one miniature pool with its very own frog!
