A Walk Down The Lane.

I always try to get out of the house if I can and go off for a walk, even if the weather isn't very good, it's nice to get out for a bit by myself, without the hounds. When I take out the dogs, we generally go for a run in the field because it's fenced in all round and I can let them off the lead and they can run around like mad things while I sit on my bench and have a cup of tea. Lazy I know but they need to run off some energy and there is no way I can keep up with 3 energetic, lunatic dogs if I take them all out on the lead so, after their run in the field, I love to go for a walk down the lane. It's amazing to see how the countryside changes throughout the year and how the hedgerows still have beautiful plants and flowers hidden amongst the bare branches, even in the depths of winter. 

Early morning down the lane where I live.

The pond in my field

An amazing eucalyptus tree that I found on my walk today. 
The bark peeling away from the trunk.

Huge fungus things that I found by the road, no idea what they are but probably quite poisonous. About the size of a saucer.

The river that runs through my field.

The cutest little mushrooms on a pile of logs.

My New Friend

I have a new friend. 

She's very cute. 

She's going to come and help me in my garden.

Her name is Gem.

She's so small I think I'm going to call her Little Gem.

She's my new lawn mower :-)
