A Little Walk

Wood sorrel

In an attempt to clear our stuffed-up heads we took off for a little walk after lunch.   Nothing too strenuous.  Just enough to raise the spirit but not to break the body.

First we nipped along the boundary of the rugby/cricket pitch where these wood sorrels nestled in a wide margin of unmown grass.  I am hoping that this strip had been intentionally left to the  wildflowers, not just a stay of execution.  Perhaps the mowers were having a tea break, or had run out of petrol, or had nipped down the road for a pasty.

Then down, past the community orchard to the beach and a blissful paddle in the sea.

Then up, up, up,

past the thorns in full bloom,

with occasional glimpses to the hills,

skirting Hillsborough’s buttercups and campions,

emerging with a bird’s eye view of the town below.

That will do.

      • One of the neighbors showed me one with rich pink flowers that I did not even know was in the neighborhood. They are uncommon for us, and the few that are around are not very pretty. There are better flowering trees to grow. Yet, the rich pink one had the color of a flowering crabapple, and was as distinguished as an old tree.

  1. The walk up the path through the trees looks like a blissful place to be with all those wildflowers popping up in the grass. And those views! Hope it all helped to clear the head.

  2. What a lovely walk. I was with you all the way, until you went into the water that is!. It has to be a lot warmer before I venture in 😊
