Most weekends we go for an early walk, preferably before breakfast. It feels like we have earned the pot of fresh coffee and warm croissants after that!
Our favourite place for a walk is a forest around the Stourhead estate, a few miles by car from our house.
There always seems to be something new to see,
like this spider's new creation.
Our first wild blackberry of the season.
I was taking pictures of unusual shapes around,
when from the corner of my eye I could see a pair of dark eyes watching me.
I nearly dropped my camera! I managed somehow to signal to DH not to move, while I lifted the camera in the direction of the dark eyes.
Please, please, you gorgeous creature, don't run away, let me take your picture!
She waited, as if she could read my mind, then slowly turned around and walked away.
Isn't she beautiful!
Yes, you have to come early for this!
