It's hectic here
May is a beautiful month up our valley. Tam is here for the week and so we took the opportunity to unwind and have a little walk further up the valley. Nothing strenuous, just enjoyment of the peaceful river and wildlife.
The steep slope up towards the old swinging bridge has been cleared in parts and new trees planted. This is a mass of Foxgloves in summer.
Looking upstream from the swinging bridge. Which actually doesn't swing any more, but it used to and the name has survived.
The path beckons . . .
View across the valley with a carpet of bluebells on the top slope.
The path ahead. I wish you could hear the birdsong.
Time to count blessings, I think . . .
We had a REALLY hectic weekend, and are only just starting to recover from the early starts, standing, packing, unpacking, walking around. We went to Malvern Fleamarket on Monday and were there over 7 hours, going round the stalls. It was fun, brilliant, rewarding - and exhausting. We had a brilliant bottle of wine from Ledbury, but unfortunately it was the last straw that broke the camel's back for my asthma and I spent the night wheezing and upping my medication. The photos we took are on Tam's camera and I hope I can upload them whilst she's here but if she needs her connector-thingy, they will have to wait until next week when she is back at home.
Anyway, I have taken photos of some of my Malvern goodies, so will put those up tomorrow.
