As a result of all this rain, (and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon!!) nature is going slightly mad!
I took a slightly different walk in the woods this morning taking in the ponds, which Charlie loved, he still doesn’t swim but wades around the outside of the pond….
The ponds are just full to the brim, and we still have a hose pipe ban in situ!! The water is just full of plants…no fish yet..well I haven’t seen any!
After leaving this pond I ventured deeper into the woods which are dark on a sunny day but today it was quite eery and very dark…spooky!!
And on to the next pond where Charlie stalks!! I don’t know what he’s stalking but he enjoys it!! Every now and then he peers through all the grass just to check that I’m still there waiting for him!!
We then walked up to the top of the hill and it was actually quite a relief to look out beyond the trees and see some open ground…it’s becoming a little oppressive in the woods at the moment!!
There are some new flowers that are flowering recently but it seems such a shame that I can’t capture them with some lovely warm sunshine on them!!
I met up with my friends and at the top of the hill all the dogs set about digging the ground and eating the soil, we don’t know what it is about the mud up there but they had a feast and no matter how we shout at them….they just gobble it up…does anyone know why? I must google it and find out…I’m guessing it’s something missing in their diet but I find it strange that ‘all’ the dogs do it!!
Well that’s it really, I haven’t done a lot more apart from watching the tennis! We are going out tonight to see some friends who have the most beautiful little girl, I will try to take some shots of her before she goes to bed….
Keep dry 🙂
