A Sunday morning walk

I’ve stayed indoors the past two days as it’s been very cold, wet and windy. It’s still cold today but calm and sunny so I went for a much needed walk through the nearby ecology park, my allotment site and the local park.

I was pleased to see a jay and a some long-tailed tits in the ecology park.  Looking round the plot I was relieved, as always,  to see that all was okay after the high winds.  I didn’t linger but crossed the road and headed for the local park where the hornbeam I’ve been tree following this year is.   The pond and wetland area is temporarily fenced off whilst a much needed all-weather path is being laid, as well as other work, so I couldn’t see the ducks.  There were plenty of gulls out on the open grass areas and a pair of squawking parakeets in one of the willows along the stream edge.

I was back home in just under an hour where the first thing I did was to make a warming cup of tea.

Apologies there are no pictures as I didn’t take a camera with me. Here are two Flighty’s favourites pot marigolds from early July, which I may have shown before.

Take care, and have a good week!

  1. It’s certainly been a stormy couple of days, we had our first snowfall here. Glad the weather’s improved somewhat so that you could get out for a walk, it seems very unsettled this coming week with temperatures fluctuating between 2 and 10 degrees here.

  2. It is so nice to be able to get out and go for a walk. Good to hear that an all-weather path is being laid at the ecology park. Here, in Lexington, Kentucky, there is an expansion of asphalt trails with a plan to link the entire county for walkers, runners, and bicyclists. Up and down weather here too.

  3. Good for you on getting out for a decent walk. You’ve a lot of diverse bird life to watch for. We did the same, got out and walked while the better conditions were with us. xxx

  4. That sounded like a good welcome walk. I find it so satisfactory to get out for a walk when it’s cold, especially when there is some brightness around. Our local farm had a farmer’s Christmas market, which was much better than in sounds, and presented me with a good reason to get out. I am now home enjoying a cup of tea and watching Frozen Planet, perfect. Xx

  5. Glad all is well down at the plot. There is usually some damage at an allotment site after a storm. Your walk sounds lovely, it’s great that you have the ecology park so close by. CJ xx

  6. It was lovely to get outdoors today after all that windy weather. I also took a stroll over to my allotment looking for damage. Thankfully not very much, a quick tidy up and home for a hot cup of tea as the rain/sleet arrived.
