C.P.Park. A November Walk. The Way Back.

C.P.Park. A November Walk. The Way Back.

I headed for the path up past the Willow and the red Fir. On the steps, Lichen [?] grew against the wooden risers.

To the right the hillside was a carpet of bronze-coloured leaves, and ahead, a squirrel was squatting looking at me, a large nut [?] in its mouth; rich pickings from the trees around.

From my vantage point high up on the slope, I could look down to the big Oak Tree from another angle.

I then joined the path around the Sports Centre, where the Spindle Berry Bush and other shrubs were filled with bounty for the birds. :-)

As it was fairly dry, I allowed myself the [careful] luxury of walking through the grass and golden leaves beneath the Beech Trees, over the hill rise and through a mixture of yet more leaves of all sorts crowding together.

Finally, leaving the Beeches behind and finding a well-trodden path, yet patterned with leaves, for all the World like a piece of bathroom lino [sorry, it just popped into my head!!] I made my way to the park exit by the train station, and thence home.

Anne … November 27th, 2020.

    There is certainly plenty to see in your lovely park Anne. The squirrels have lots of bounty this year as well as the jays with all the acorns. A lovely lifeline for you in these wierd times. Thank you for showing us round :-)

    Lovely picture of the majestic oak.

  3. A totally lovely walk, Anne :-) Just heard today from the farm where F-i-l lives that they’ve lost about 20 young sheep from acorn poisoning :-( It’s been a mast year everywhere, it seems :

      How sad about the sheep Jane :disappointed: but yes, a mast year, definitely … loads of acorns around :good: and thank you for the article … really informative :good: :-) and I thought acorns were poisonous to humans, as opposed to just being bitter and unpalatable. As a child I wondered why pigs could eat them! :confused: :rose:

  4. A lovely walk Anne & such great shaped trees
