do you sometimes travel through a place and think how nice it looks, but never get the chance to explore it further? The village of Wymeswold is one of the many places that falls into that category for me.
Today I had the chance to remedy that.
I parked by this wonderful (weeping willow lined) stream that runs through the streets. How great is that.
I didn't get far before these cute lambkins caught my eye. Got to love those pink ears in the morning sun.
Double Awww. Look at that little guy sleeping with his mum.
and the view on-wards. How I love all the fresh green.
And the lack of mud :0)
Soon I was walking along the edge of a field and noticing how high the bright yellow Rape crop is.
I followed the well trodden track.
It was so peaceful up here. The only sound was birdsong.
There were so many birds.
I loved this cute Yellowhammer ( thank you for correcting me Louise and CJ xx)
Here I noticed some lovely Blackthorn blossom
Looking back towards Wymeswold.
I've zoomed in a bit here so it's clearer.
It was all so idyllic on a perfect spring day. But by this time I was getting hot and feeling lost. Oh dear I don't think this is the way.
Hello Mr Robin.
Here I was glad to finally find the little nature reserve I had been aiming for.
The brook was shady.
with a big meander that reminded me of school geography lessons.
I'm so glad spaces like this are protected for wildlife.
Eventually I came out at a road and smiled at the information board. The tiny stream is the River Mantle. I presume It gets much bigger further downstream.
Thankfully the road was quiet.
This white building with a plaque caught my eye.
I love old details like this...and Wymeswold is spelt with an i.
It really was a beautiful day to wander.
and notice the old buildings. This one is so tall and thin.
I loved the narrow streets.
I hope you enjoyed joining me
