Casabermeja walk. 18th April 2021.

April 18, 2021

It was supposed to be a rainy weekend so I had nothing planned, but it turned out beautiful. Tanya phoned me at 8.30 this morning and said “How about a walk “. So up quick, cold shower (!), and met Tanya and Manuel in Casabermeja at 9.30

A great walk and not too much up hill.

April 3rd. Walk to Santo Pitar.

April 3, 2021

A lovely walk of about 8.5 kilometres.

So many wild flowers and I have just downloaded a plant recognition app, so it took us ages! Some of the great views and flowers here.

Solid yellow broom flowers. It looks like scrambled egg. Beautiful bumble bee on a rock rose. Way in the distance Periana, in the mid ground the circle of white is Comares.

April 2nd…I think. Happy Easter.

I did a walk with friends Tanya and Manuel today. Starting at the Bar Ortega. A round route ending with lunch back at the bar. 13.37 km

Maroma mountain. The long and winding road
This was an absolute sea of this tiny white flower. Looks much more dramatic in real life.
Membrillo or you may know this as quince. Butterfly orchid.
Cistus or rock rose.
Asphodel and knapweed.
Can you see the sleeping giant here?
Borage
Amazing jasmin. I can almost smell it just looking at the photo.

The three of us.

Loddington. March 16th

March 16, 2021
Avenue of trees up to the church. Daffodils fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Do I need to say, this is the church!
Mossy branches, muddy fields and ?
Dramatic skies
Beginning and end of walk.

Uppingham to Bisbrook over the Inhams

March 14, 2021
I wonder who took the care to plant these mini daffs infront of this shabby shed door.
Those boots are still there. Size 9 if your interested!
View from the Inhams and, at last, some lambs close enough to take a picture.
I don’t remember seeing this ever before. A completely empty market place.
Another barn door in Bisbrook.

Uppingham, Wardley wood, Sweet Hedges, Stockerston, Uppingham. March 13th

March 13, 2021

Violets braving the blustery weather. Lovely views towards Wardley wood. Rain threatened in those heavy clouds.
A seat in the sun, just before the rain.
A great contrast, green velvet mossy tree trunks and another beautiful curved branch stripped completely bare.
My first dandelion of the year.
Ahhh, that’s where I am!
The Eye brook.
Super tall poplar tree and a little mossy forest.
Dramatic views and clouds and some very neat hedge laying.
Tangled horse chestnut tree full of sticky buds. Ancient farm implement. I wonder if it’s still used.
Back in town and I admired this rounded, curvy topiary, but not sure about the unnatural box!
