Nature Walk

Grandson Sam was off school due to having had a very upset tummy earlier in the week, and had  to be clear for 48hrs. so Nannie was looking after him. As it was such a nice day and Sam is studying nature at school we set off for a wander around Creekmoor ponds/lakes, not to sure what their correct title is!!!


We walked past the smaller lake, then headed off into the woods and came out near the next lake with Ducks &swans.

We then found another path to go along and came across some lovely spring flowers.

Heading back home, we came across some fungi growing on tree stumps&fallen  branches.

Sam has a thing about collecting leaves, so we found some more for his collection.



ON the last bit of our Journey home, we came across a very furry black cat, it was rally difficult to actually see his eyes.

We came across some lovely blossom.



Then Sam spied a dandelion clock, so some poor garden now has rather a lot of  possible dandelions growing!!!!

It was a great way to spend a couple of hours, looking at things from a child’s point of view.

    That was a lovely walk Lynn, wildlife flora and fauna, nice to see Sam interested. OH’s grandsons had the tummy bag last week but eating like horses now. I am in awe of your photos posted to the blog. Despite help from Bean and gertie I just can’t get them on a blog. :cry:

    • Thank-you Cilla, I feel very lucky to live in a nice area and also be able to share it with future generations. I’m not to sure how I do it Cilla either, its a bit hit and miss, never got 2 pics to sit together like that before :unsure: :scratch:

    What a lovely walk and best way to boost those immune systems, cute little boy too :heart: , it’s so lovely when they take an interest in what’s around them, and what an adorable cat, I can remember blowing dandelion clocks too, did see a flower of one up the plot on Sunday but picked it before it had a chance to seed :scratch:
    Love all the piccy,s too :-)

    • Thanks Karen, I pick any dandelions that i see, keeps the seeds down, especially as Sam and any other child, loves blowing them ;-) Thank-you he is cute most of the time, does have the occasional major strop!!!
