A Perfect Morning Walk

Hello Lovelies,
Yesterday I was working a late shift. I generally prefer to get up and go to work, not go later in the day. But there is a lot  to be said for the chance of a morning walk in the sunshine. 

It was such a perfect spring morning too. I was walking with a friend somewhere new. Somewhere local, but  a little bit too isolated for me to brave it alone..........

The doggy was just passing case you thought I had a four legged friend :0)

Suddenly everywhere you look leaves are unfurling...............

And the lanes draw you onward, wondering what's around the next corner..............

how we loved this glade of towering pine trees...........

The filtered sunlight was so beautiful, illuminating the fresh green leaves...........

And the forget-me-nots were still damp with dew............

Above our heads the sky was clear blue and the birdsong was delightful...........

Though the birds are already getting harder to spot now the trees and hedges are coming into leaf.
This Chaffinch was easy to see at least, happily singing on the power line.........

Here were were treated to far reaching views across the fields.........

Just look at that sky.

A little further along  we were back into the woods again........

Where I loved the mass of pretty yellow Celandines............

and all the I've missed the green this winter.

It was an idyllic morning for a walk in the woods. I even spotted a few early Bluebells.....

such a special spring flower.

The world looked wonderful at every turn.........

And the blossom in the lanes was a frothy delight..........

 It was hard to head indoors when the time came.....but I was delighted to be able make the most of the perfect morning.

  2. Beautiful, you captured the forget-me-nots so well! Sometimes I have to remember not to walk alone around woodland and countryside near cities. I never used to do it, but have got used it in Gloucestershire. x

  9. Anytime we can squeeze in a walk is a win. How lovely, everything coming to life. I too have missed the leaves, our trees are nearly all full now just the oaks to go. Caught another swarm today. It's been very sunny and warm here today. Enjoy the week!

  14. Jacquie, what a wonderful morning walk! It's interesting to report that I saw some similar sights this week in Central Park right in the middle of New York City. You might be amused to see that there is some natural beauty around here. xo
