Wood Walking

Spring is on it's way, here in Scotland. Although that may be a little bit of 'speaking too soon', because it is perfectly possible for snow to arrive tomorrow! It does feel like spring though. The days are longer and at last we have some sunlight.

I wanted to share some photos with you, from our walk on Sunday in Crombie Country Park.

  4. Wow, that's gorgeous. I'm glad you got some nice weather on Sunday, too. Still, I know you were disappointed that there were no SWANS. But perhaps you weren't near enough to a swanny type of pond though, hm? :)

  6. No snow yet! But I think it is on it's way, Lisa!

    Hi Val, It was a lovely walk and my first visit to the park, I will definitely go back again!

    I had a sandwich and some water with me Johanna, not very inspired I know!

    Actually Tadmack, there were swans, but we just saw them in the distance, so I suppose that makes this 'Swanny Loch'.! You are dying to visit that pond, go on admit it!

  7. Hi Lynn, you just have to get up early and do the housework first, however, this advice is being given by the hypocrite, who is sitting at the pc and having reading breaks, but should be finishing the housework!

  8. That looks so beautiful--and I am totally envious of the lack of snow!

  9. Great photos. The weather is a bit unpredictable here as well--we had beautiful, 80 degree days, so I decided to plant all of my herbs and veggies last weekend (previously killed by the December cold). And this morning? 30 degrees. Argh!

  12. Oh this looks so very very much like our woods nearby, lovely of course:) Perhaps that's one of the reasons I feel so at home and comfortable in Scotland.

  13. Look at those blue skies! Yes, spring for you is on it's way! I bet the air smelled very fresh!
    Happy Leap Day!

  14. All you need to do now is to collect some nettles... ;)

  15. Absolutely beautiful Holler! *so wishes spring was ready to bloom in her area, which is currently covered in about 5 inches of fresh snow*

  16. Hi Pia, aren't we lucky to have woods near us to walk in, there is just something special about it!

    Hi Deb, It was lovely and fresh and great to get a bit of fresh air and sunshine. Unfortunately it has all gone to pot and we have high winds and pelting rain just now!

    Hi A forkful of spaghetti, I don't think I am up to nettles yet, I remember too many stings as a child, although there was always a dock leaf or two about to soothe the burn!

    Hi Jenny, I think a lot of people are getting very sick of the snow at the moment! And just so we don't feel left out, the forecast here is for sleet and snow! I am glad I got a weekend of walks in the sunshine.

  17. Oh, lovely. I can't wait to be able to walk outdoors here. We're still buried in snow... in fact, it's snowing now.

  18. Great pictures! Glad you're getting out, despite the awful weather!

  19. Thanks so much for posting these photos-- what a beautiful walk you had!
    Um... regarding the next-to-the-last photo in the series... that's a statue of a heron-like bird, isn't it? Or are things so much larger in Scotland???

  20. I hope the snow leaves you soon Mrs W!

    Thanks David, it wasn't a patch on Saturday though!

    Hi Vicci, Don't be alarmed, it is a statue!

  21. Great pics. I love that park. Love scaring the kids by telling them there are big cats in the woods -- which there might be! There could be anything in there. When we were there in the summer the paths were infested with tiny frogs. We had to watch every step to try to avoid crushing them. We always see something to surprise us at Crombie.

  22. I'd love to see the tiny frogs! What a great photo that would make, with all the tree in the background!
