wild landscapes

Wednesday began the start of easing the country (England) out of the tough lockdown restrictions that we have had for the last 8 weeks. Some people will be returning to work, garden centres are allowed to reopen, and we can go further afield to exercise as long as we like, though we still can’t meet up with family or friends except on a 1:1 basis. I don’t begin to understand that concept as if I met someone and caught the virus I could still take it home to my family. Anyway, we’re here to take our minds off the whole situation, but as we are no longer asked to #StayAtHome, rather to #StayAlert this will be the last of this series and hopefully I shall soon be able to post photos from slightly further afar.

From the views from the hill where the bluebells are in charge still, to the changing flora in the lanes I am so lucky to have had all this to keep me sane during whilst not being allowed to travel.

Thank you for keeping me company during this time, let’s hope that by staying alert we keep the spread of this awful virus down, though I for one am in no rush to head anywhere too far away any time soon.

    I would join you in staying alert and distanced.
    Lovely flowers on your walk.

      There is usually enough space, although some of the lanes are no more than a metre wide so they can be tricky.

    a wonderful walk in beautiful landscape and gorgeous flowers along the way! staying alert is definitely a good idea 🙂

      Thank you Wilma. I am definitely going to stay alert and mainly still stay at home!

    You have such a beautiful landscape to explore Jude. We too, having started lifting a few restrictions but are hopefully adopting a slow & steady pace. I don’t think I will be venturing into areas with too many people for awhile to come.

    Jude, your photos are a great comfort to me. At least some things continue as before. The bluebells are a special favourite. Have you noticed how being confines gives us a greater appreciation of our own back yards? Stay well.

  6. I read that many areas, such as Cornwall, Cumbria, and the Peak District are worried about being inundated. I hope you aren’t. There are already camper vans coming over the border here, and I know Wales has the same problem. Too many folk not reading the rules, or thinking they don’t apply to them.

      I am staying close to home so it should be okay, other than shopping I don’t really see anyone else. I have resigned myself to not travelling this year, let’s hope next year is better.

      1. Yes, we’re much the same. We moved our Easter cottage booking to August but I can’t even see that going ahead. And even when restrictions are eased here, because my mum will still need to be protected I don’t see myself making any changes for quite some time.
