What a beautiful day it has been today. The sun was out with avengence. My youngest grandaughter spent the morning with Katie & I. So we went for a walk with 'the girls' Please join us on our ramble.
This is one of a few Beech trees remaining. Our village is called Coalway. Apparently there were several avenues of beech which lined the walks to the local coal and iron ore mines. Several saplings now exist but only a few of the original trees remain. This majestic one is only a few hundred yards from our home. It marks all the seasons with an aray of colour ranging from acid green in the spring to burnt copper in the autumn.
As always the girls are keen to get out in the forest
While the sun was shining and it was relatively warm there were still signs of last nights frost.
I hope you enjoyed our short walk as much s we did
