I took some photos
on the slopes
and in the woods today,
and here are just a few:
It’s that time of year again, where the blossom is out on the slopes
and ghost wood is looking rather splendid with it’s carpet of blue.
If you can, I’d strongly suggest you take a walk around there asap
– it really is a lovely sight.
The slopes have a smattering of buttercups, however,
the display of yellow doesn’t quite match the performance of previous years.
Maybe next year…?
Greenstead Slopes are looking stunning with all the buttercups and Ghost Wood is a mass of sheep’s parsley and bluebells. There’s constant birdsong wherever you go in the wood and thanks to the constant efforts of a handful of volunteers the litter and dog poop situation is slowly getting under control.
Of course, if it wasn’t for the small minority of irresponsible pet owners then the task would be a lot easier to deal with ….and less disgusting…
These photos were taken in Ghost Wood on Tuesday 15th April 2014.
While I was in the woods I bumped into several responsible dog owners (poopi bags with them) who all commented on how beautiful the woods looked with all of the bluebells and how wonderful the scent was.
