After derogatory comments about the colour of my recent photos, I am very reluctant to be photographer on Kathy's evening walk - the first official evening walk of the year.
After a discussion with Mike during which I insist my camera is ALWAYS sent on Smart, thus absolving me of any decisions about the photos, we realise it is NOT SET on Smart, and this proves the point.
Tonight's walk is a Wild Flower Fest, starting with Wood Anenomes
Primroses and Bluebells
Banks of them
And a strong smell of wild garlic.
We walk through the woods
To a quarry
Then uphill into the sunshine
The only reminder of wetter times
It's an idyllic setting
And the noise of lambs is deafening
There are lots of them
We briefly re-enter the woods
And emerge on to a very well marked path through this farmer's field
Now there are cowslips
A stunning picture (even though I say so myself!)
Banks of them
And more primroses as well
Blossom in a nearby garden
This looks like the sign of a serious business
In this building???
As the evening ends, we reach Horsley church
Mike and I (two teachers!) discuss whether this would be a good example of Cloze Procedure, where children supply the missing letters. We decide it would get a good response from the pupils, but the parents???
On the way back to the car park the cats of Horsley come out
And there are a lot of them!
