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.
