I am quite sure that, when I walked down to the heath yesterday, this chestnut tree was not in flower – and now look at it!!
I swear that they have all come out within the last 24 hours…
And look how stunning they are…..
And just down the bottom of that meadow, the blackthorn was also bursting its buds.
Admittedly it was late afternoon by the time I went out so the blossoms had all day in the full sun. Even so, that was quick work!
The early evening on the heath these days is rather like joining the paseo. Small groups of two, or two and a couple of children, or, even more often, two and a dog – ‘taking the air’ – nodding and smiling at each other, with the occasional ‘hello’ or ‘good evening’.
So here is an early evening walk – down one of my favourite paths which ends up at the ‘climbing tree’ – a path that I think I took you up a few days ago as I remember pointing out that stunning yellow bush.
