Fancy A Walk
Join Sol and me on an afternoon walk
Turn right out of the drive and walk down the road
Off down the track into the forest
The sun is shining and the air is still
Following the path up to the top we look across the valley
In the distance the group of trees marks the entrance to our drive
we continue down into the forest,
the gorse is in flower and buzzing with bees
I like to think they are our bees,
Its close enough to be our bees.
There is a small stream that carries the run off from the hills
Sol likes to have a paddle
and a quick drink to quench his thirst
and the only way to really cool off is to lay down in the water
We walk on to our turning point,
enjoying the views of the valleys and hills stretching out before us
heading home we jump the muddy puddle
Which is full of frog spawn
Sol finds another pool of water to wash his stick,
he likes to dip his sticks in water
Heading home with the moon in the sky on one side and the sun shining on the other
The air was heavy with the scent of garlic
wild garlic we found a lovely patch growing
I picked a handful
To enjoy with scramble eggs sausage and bacon for tea.
First bit of wild foraging of the year,
Lovely it was too.
I hope you enjoyed a afternoon stroll with Sol and me.
