After a lovely family breakfast in the sunshine, Steve and I went for a walk in the nearby Guestling Woods. It is very close to the Freshwinds Campsite.
The anemones (or windflowers) were at their snow-white best in the glorious sunshine. They tend to close up on dull days.
Our twisty lane is awash with wild flowers.
We walked up to the third entrance.
From there we made our way to what we call the triangle area, closest to the farm....
.....passing freshly dug badgers` setts.
This one even has footprints.
The bluebells were just starting to show.
Some tiny ferns had unfurled.
It was peaceful with only the sound of birdsong.
The mosses were prolific after all the damp weather.
Maybe it is the excess water that has caused this huge oak to fall.
The anemones were lovely but there were plenty of other wild flowers to enjoy.
Celandines and violets.
When we were nearly home, I found a length of trimmed honeysuckle and formed it into a ring.
Perhaps it will be a summer wreath or a prop for the witch garden I`m planning.
