Oooo! I do love a Robin’s Pincushion. 😉
This is the first time I can recall seeing one Sandra, so I was well pleased
A lovely collection of nature’s finest wild things…
And all within a few minutes walk
Indeed – these were all on one of my regular ‘short lap’ walks
I would love some of those, but nothing close enough! (We live in a town)
We are blessed, living where we do, I know – a small village which itself is just outside a small town, so we step out of the house into the countryside and there are many circular walks we can take
I am green with envy, but glad for you!
Oh wow, are they all growing wild? Fantastic photos. 🙂
Yes, all in the local hedgerows Jpanne
Lovely photos, Cathy. Autumn is definitely on us.
Yes, it’s certainly trying very hard to do so!
What delightful pictures – so lovely!
Thank you. Lockdown was good for getting into the walking habit and has brought many joys, including watching the seasons change
Oh definite shades of autumn Cathy. No doubt being appreciated by birds, bees and other wildlife as well as us humans. Did you encounter any fungi on your stroll?
I am sure they will be, Anna – and fungi? I don’t think so…these were all on a roadside verge although I have seen the odd mushroom or toadstool on this royte before
Lovely! Reminds me of nature walks when I was at school. 😃
Made me think back Cathy – and realise that we didn’t have nature walks or nature tables… but my Grannie used to take me on walks and tell me about the wild flowers
We were lucky to have a teacher in my third year at primary school who loved nature and encouraged us to look for things. We had a nature table the whole year and I remember taking a snake skin I found and impressing everyone! (Didn’t see the snake though!)
That must have been a lovely experience to have over the years, Cathy
How funny, I posted something very similar today 😁
Yes, that was a lovely collage of yours, Jude. My photos were actually taken at the weekend and the post prepared in advance, as I was popping down to see my daughter during the week
Cathy magical autumn splendor of fruits in your garden. I love the color palette: they are the most wonderful colors that Nature offers us at this time of year. Cathy sorry I didn’t write in so long but a lot has happened, too much, and I have been very depressed. On the 23rd they operated on me: three days ago! I am at home recovering and with pain in the stitches, because they removed a cyst in my private parts. Cathy, I hope you and the golfer are in very good health. Stay safe and take good care of yourself. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita xx
Good to hear from you, Margarita, as I wondering how you were with the huge rise in Covid in Madrid. Sorry to hear you have had to have an operation although I hope it leads to an improvement in your health and that your recovery is speedy. We are both well, thank you. The pictures were taken on a walk and not in the garden, but of course there are signs of autumn in the garden too
Margarita – I read another comment from you but it has disappeared. You mentioned talking and it is important to talk when you are feeling depressed. Please email me if you like
Cathy, thank you very much for your words of encouragement for my recovery from the operation. We have been confined in Madrid capital and in other cities of the Autonomous Community of Madrid due to the increase in Covid since October 2. We have 43% of Covid cases from Spain in Madrid. Cathy, I’m so glad you and the golfer are doing well. Cathy I would like to tell you many more things but I do not have your email. Mine is email@example.com, if you want send me your email to mine and I will write to you. Thank you very much for your invitation to write to you by email. I still have depression and more. Stay safe and take good care of you both. I wish you the best. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita x
