Just Another Walk in the Park!

Just Another Walk in the Park!

Have had a lousy week with a cold. Sniffles, cough , wheezing … all exacerbated by asthma. A walk in fresh air, however dull it was out there, seemed like a restorative idea. I wasn’t even going to take pictures, but soon the beauty of the trees and the fun of the dinosaurs took over. It was still lovely. I clicked!

Again I noticed that moorhens are brown … are they young or is it the season?

There remained splashes of colour in the growing wintry trees, and reflections in the still water were as magical as ever. I never tire of them.

Up and over the hilly path were yet more views through trees, of the dinosaurs.

I love the juxtaposition of berried Holly and autumnal Oak leaves.

Pigeons/Stoggies, have found a new roost here, across the other side of the lake.

We passed an intrepid group of ‘artists’ sitting in the cold …..

… and the beech tree, which had dangled such a beautiful bouquets of bright leaves on another outing, was now all but bare.

A chattering school party walked past the Sports Stadium, as we began to make our way back home.

I don’t like the cars parked in the park … I think that they spoil the tree views, but hey ….. I can cover them up in collages !

We strode across the green towards the expensive ‘Christmas Trees for Sale’ in a little compound surrounded with festive, twinkling lights; under a Plane Tree, already decorated with its own Christmas balls, past the Station and home again.

    Oh Anne. We didn’t know you were feeling rough but good to hear you are on the mend :good: There is still lots of colour in your park and your photos, as usual, are beautiful. I think you need a glass of something medicinal now ;-) :drink:

    Thank you Cilla … I’m sorry I didn’t say, but I felt too fed up … okay now. Will definitely have a hot toddy near bedtime … helps enormously ;-) :lol: :rose:

  3. It’s good to have such a walk you can go on, Anne. It never ceases to amaze me how much open space London has. I’m not a Royalist, yet I dread to think how this country would look if, for example, the Royal Parks hadn’t been made public places…

    It’s true Jane … there really are many lovely parks around, an about a mile down the road is the Country Nature Reserve made from where there used to be a sewerage works many moons ago. There are still big trees dotted around too, many left from the Great North Woods. :good: :rose:
