In the Woods

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

This week I am looking at things closer to home. Living as I do in the countryside I only have to walk out of my front door to be surrounded by fields and views of the hills and a glimpse of the sea. I know I am very lucky to have all this space and beauty.

This is a small woodland at the bottom of Trencrom Hill which is carpeted in autumn leaves at the moment. Sadly no fungi to be found, but a good place for tree bathing.

Walking Squares

    You and I seem to be able to post photos of our home patches that are very similar. Aren’t we lucky?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I must admit it makes me reluctant to move.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Yes, but we found out over the summer just how dependent we are on a car. And I am the only driver!

        2. margaret21 says:

          Ah yes. I get that. We have for two years had an on-demand bus service which has helped enormously. But apparently it works out at £18 per passenger journey, so we’re not hopeful that it’ll continue.

        3. Heyjude says:

          We have buses during the summer only and it is a 20 min walk downhill and 30 min walk back up. OK now, but probably not in our eighties. And taxis are horribly expensive here.

        4. margaret21 says:

          Yes, and it would be unwise to leave moving till you’re 80 odd, I see that.

  2. Seems like a great place to take your shoes off and wander through the leaves … but I presume it may be wet 😉. Great photos!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not only wet, but muddy underfoot and horses come through on this trail so you do need to watch where you step!

    I will be in some smal woods like those with Ollie later. At least it has finally stopped raining! (For now.)
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Good luck with the rain! We are still having heavy showers every day, some intermittent sunshine, but not nearly enough!

    It sure is beautiful Jude 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      It looks lovely BB but I find it’s quite a sterile wood. No bluebells in spring and I never hear any bird song, though I am sure there are owls in this area.

      1. bushboy says:

        Oh dear that is not good at all 😦

        1. Heyjude says:

          It’s most odd

  5. Cee Neuner says:

    I so adore the tree you highlighted, its old and luscious 😀

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Cee. That one did seem to be the biggest tree.

    So beautiful

  7. So green and pretty 😍

  8. BeckyB says:

    oh I do love a beech wood, this is so beautiful

    Lovely! You are indeed lucky to be surrounded by such beauty, Jude!
