With the sunshine today, after breakfast and the necessary grocery shopping, we set off to the woods near Farely Mount. It used to be one of our favourite walks before my hip issues and today it co-operated wonderfully as we re-explored old haunts.
We started at the bottom of the hill and walked up the road
where the trees were dressed in dappled sunshine.
At the top of the hill another road leads down to the valley below.
A gorgeously coloured dragonfly blessed us with his presence and graced me with the opportunity to photograph him in all his glory. I love how the bracken can be seen though the wings.
The paths on the way down were really wet after the rains last night
and the views across the fields were peaceful.
All too soon we turned back up through the woods once more
where the wild roses in the underbrush where bathed in sunlight and coated in moisture
and the tree tops were painted in sunlight, glorious green against blue skies.
