you have to get up early for this

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!


  1. You can come and visit me . We have them in our garden and you can most likely see them late at night or early in the morning.. They are so cute 1 mom with twins and kids are playing hide and seek in our garden ;-)

  2. Hi Radka! I'm sorry I've been away for so has been keeping me so busy and away from blogging!

    I really enjoyed your post today...your photos, as always, are beautiful. You have a nice eye for capturing the beauty in nature...and the doe is so sweet. Glad you were able to capture her image.

    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!



  3. Krásné! Vypadá to tam u vás téměř stejně jako u nás, také jsou tu nedaleko bukové lesy, střídané borovými a smrkovými.
    Skoro bych věřila na lesní skřítky, když vidím ty fotky.

  4. I love the photos you have added today. I like the two fo the trees. The top one looks like a Cassawary & her chick, & the one underneath it looks like a giant cattapillar with a stuned look on its face. And how exciting to see the deer.
