RETURN TO WALK AT SPYNIE

You may remember joining me on this walk back in March. Just look what a difference a few weeks have made.

Bryan and Jarvis heading off like dogs on a mission.
Brand new leaves on the beeches.

Look at the black clouds heading my way, luckily it blew over and I stayed dry.

I love the contrast between the dark Scots Pine and the light green Beech.

Isn't it lovely to see the countryside coming back to life with all those wonderful 'green' scents? I'm glad it stayed dry for you.
(By the way, Winston is an Ocicat - no wild blood in him at all.)

Gorgeous Chris. I remember the winter walk---and there's a TON of difference.... Love the new leaves on the Beech trees.

Thanks for the walk.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks for taking us back here. It was very pretty earlier, but the new Spring growth is beautiful. It looks as if Jarvis and Bryan enjoyed the outing as well.

Beautiful, it is a wonderful to see the passing of the seasons isn't it. I love to walk the same path through our local wood and watch in amazement the tiny changes taking place.

Those are very beautiful photos of your environment, very nice perspective. I bet they look also awesome in autumn. We dont have those countryside looks especially the very clean undergrowths. And lastly, i would like to greet you Belated Happy Birthday and may you receive what you still long for. I am sorry i've been late visiting here. thank you.

Somehow I missed this post.

Bryan and Jarvis do look like they are on a mission! =) The trees, shrubs, and flowers look so beautiful dressed in their spring colors. Wonderful capture of the bee on the dandelion. I've never heard of Delicate Dog Violet, but its flowers look similar to what grows here. Very pretty.
