azziria: (spring)
Down through the forest and along the Withywindle, path winding close and secret through high green walls of fresh new reeds and comfrey, river sliding slow, deep and dark by the pathside, willows leaning, fluttering, clutching. Damselflies and butterflies flittering across the path. Sunwarmth. A low hum of insects. Damp earth and green smell. Silvery zigzag ripple of a grass snake in the water, then another, dead on the path, stripped to bone head-to-half and whole from half-to-tail, macabre reminder of death in life.

A good day.
azziria: (spring)
The weather forecast yesterday morning said 'Spring!', so the kids and I went over to Brandon Country Park for a walk, a picnic, and some tree-climbing. Loads of butterflies around - Commas, Brimstones and Tortoiseshells - and several Chiffchaffs singing. A glorious day, warm enough in the sun for t-shirts, and with that lovely green smell of Spring in the air.

Took advantage of what is predicted to be our only fine day this week to head over to Brandon Country Park for a couple of hours to walk, look and listen.
