It's what blogging's for....


.......to keep a record of a sunny Sunday walk.

 Tree tunnels and friends..


 richly coloured moors


blue skies


feathery dozing trees


 silvery seedheads


 and a joyous little dog with a white triangle at the back.

Our boots were heavy with mud but our hearts were light.




 Monday's walk. Totally different .
Just me, with Hetty on her lead.
The gloating autonomous Jools sitting on the compost bin watching us set off.


 And what does Hetty spy in the next field?


 She needs to investigate further. I think her feet may be off the ground here.



 Oo er...


 And they're off.


But they are as nosey as she is and look at her from a safe distance.


 Creeping back gradually.


There's nothing quite like a sheepish stare.

Then back towards home...my house  (Or at least the roof) across the road is just in the centre...red brick with 3 chimneys. Our half is hidden behind the tree.


We leave the sheep to safely graze under the wide moorland sky.


Two glorious sunny days.

You have captured some of my favourite things in your lovely photographs Jackie - thanks for sharing them with us. I love the moors and tree tunnels, especially when they grow over very old lanes and pathways.
Love Hetty's reaction to the sight of sheep. Perhaps she could get a part-time job as a sheep dog! Or maybe she just wants to see them run.

Thank you for sharing this journey - it was a delight to follow you. Especially on a day when I'm stuck inside with the rain outside and the ironing to do ...

I think a hobbit might be just out of sight in the leafy tunnel. That looks like the place fairy tales come from.

Hi, Jackie. Amazing photos and I liked seeing where you live. I used to think I lived in the country, but now the big city is encroaching. Looks like you won't be having that problem!
best, nadia
