Sunny winter walk

investigating the woodlandWinter's walking in sunlight for a change. Warm rays on us all bringing smiles and a skip in our steps.farmer's fieldsPlants starting to peek through the woodland carpet and rustle the dry leaves out of the way. flora poking throughDogs happy to be brought along. New smells. Trees and hollow to poke wet noses around.happy dog walking
A landscape still bare but full of spring promise.field viewPlenty to see. Mosses, ferns, woodland plants and fungus. A pretty tapestry.fungusPondering the adventures to take. Up the soil embankment to the trees or to dipping our hands into the leaves again?winter sunlightBeauty in small things, in light and shadows, in new growth and in faded foliage.brackenKeep to the path but we can peep over...... private gateWindswept and cheeks pink with late winter sun.happy boyNew shoots, such beauty and how happy it makes us.spring shoots Little Bird enjoyed all the textures, sensory, learning new words.barkHow different the light can be as we pass through dips in the forest.winter light

What a lovely way to follow your walk through pictures. I always love a walk that has a surprise in store, in this case I bet stroking the horses was a wonderful treat. Great photos, thank you for joining me for Country Kids.

Beautiful photos, and looks a lovely sunny day. I love how there must always be 'treasure' collected by little ones, too - mine are the same :)
