flowers

Quiet time

I returned to St Margaret’s Church in Old Catton today to soak up more of the sunshine and walk quietly round the graveyard.

Here are a few of the pictures I took. Click to see larger versions.

I have mixed feelings about the grass being cut. At this time of year the wildlife thrive on the long grasses and wild flowers, but I understand that people want and need access to the graves.

There does seem to be a nice balance at St Margaret’s with large areas allowed to grow, while access is still maintained for the majority of graves.

If you are ever passing, it really is a lovely place to walk and think about all those stories that lie beneath your feet.

Heading back though Catton Park, I spotted a couple of fine examples of wild flowers.

Little steps

I need to do more walking. Working in the garden and doing jobs around the house are all well and good, but there are parts of my body that are starting to ask if they are needed any more.

Now that we have a little more freedom to get out more I’m planning on a daily pre-breakfast walk.

Apart from the exercise it will also get me back to the nature I enjoy. I went for an hour and half walk today and it was lovely to see all the flowers covered in bees. It was also good to hear the flowers covered in bees. The noise was quite special, all the buzzing and rattling of wings on petals.

I’m very lucky that I live near to a couple of lovely parks and just a short distance from open countryside. I want to explore more of it and share it here.

So to get things started here are a few images from today’s walk.

Stay fit and stay safe.

Day 46 – Four plants, one cat

I appear to have used up all the words in my head that were allocated for this week. I’ll reset my brain overnight and I will post some very interesting words tomorrow. Possibly some I’ve never used before.

In the meantime here are some random images from today.

Stay ant free and stay safe.
