Spring evening walk in the woods.

 Last evening we had a spontaneous walk in our local woods.

 And what a treat it was, every where you looked nature was bursting into spring!

Leaves were beautifully fresh and green....

...the evening setting sun gave a warm glow to what was a very cold walk even after our mini heatwave!

This is the first time I have seen wild violets in the woods, such a delicate shade of blue and purple.

So much life was bursting to get out and shout to the world ''Im alive!"

We discovered a little more of the woods that we hadn't ventured into before, finding unusual sights ....

...like a 'Nude Tree Art' trail!

A rather fetching lady!

i rather liken the Lichen around here too!

So many types in such a small space, a world of its own!

Who lives here I wonder?

Ooo, a naked man!
(no, not living in the burrows! Nude Tree Art!!)

As we come back out of the woods you are greeted by one of my favourite views, Firle Beacon.

With the light fading, it was back up the hill....

...pass the cottages and homeward bound.

Have a gorgeous Easter weekend and eat lots of Hot cross Buns and chocolate eggs!


I love those walks when you slip out early evening and change the routine, when yOu go and see things and everyone feels comfortable with each other. I have seen loads of white and purple violets this year. I think it has been the year for them. Bluebells are coming here already.
