Jez decided to come with Max and I when we went for our walk at Upton Country Park this morning. I parked in the new car park and we walked around the new section and the woodland walk. It was a bit overcast so I only took a couple of photos. The first one is to show that Max is going to be in for a treat soon. This Sweet Chestnut tree has lots of nuts just waiting to fall.
Walking along the path near the cows field isn’t very pleasant at the moment – it’s very smelly. And the poor cows are left to cope with loads of mud. As you can see in this next photo. But at least there are a few piles of straw in places, creating little cow islands in the mud.
When we got back to the car two things happened: Max ran off and found some discarded rubbish to scavenge (until I could get there and pull him away), and I discovered I had a flat tyre. So I had to call Chris and get a neighbour to run him over with a pump (this car doesn’t have a spare). Then once I got home I had to go and get the tyre sorted. It had a nail through it and I needed a new tyre. And I never made it to pilates.
There’s no year ago today, I’m afraid. I don’t seem to have taken any photos that day.
