“Inhale and hold the evening in your lungs.”
― Sebastian Faulks

Whilst we have a beautiful (man-made) bunch of fields and park right outside our front door, we also have a bigger bunch of (slightly more natural) fields just around the corner. So we decided to venture there rather last minute today with the dog, whilst the sky turned thundery and beautiful…

We weren’t disappointed, the rolling hills, shimmering fields and beautiful grass combined nicely with the backdrop of a thundery sky. With a few rumbles in the distance, we decided to cautiously venture further…

And stumbled across the animals of Farthing Wood. A few shy Deer and a snuffling Badger weren’t too bothered by ours (and the dogs) presence.

Just goes to show, you should never stay in just because it looks like it’s going to rain… ;)

“If you tell a joke in the forest, but nobody laughs, was it a joke?” – Steven Wright

Today began with bits and pieces to do and then a wander through part of a local Forest. I’d never been there before and it was tucked away on a piggery (place where piggies are kept) so it was quiet and peaceful – and the weather wasn’t too bad!

Buddy loved it, although he’s quite pensive about public places now. He’s got too used to having the meadow as his own. That and I think he knows if he disappears (see yesterdays blog!) then he gets into trouble!

For a while I was hoping that Deer would make an appearance, but sadly they didn’t. The trees weren’t quite orange enough to make for Autumny backdrops yet either, but a couple more weeks and hopefully they will.

There were some interesting prints though, which I managed to get a close up shot of. Take a look below and see what you think – the obvious choice is badger…but there’s something eery about them! It could have been the fact they were taken outside some huge chicken sheds – that I swear contained Chickens marching up and down…that’s what it sounded like anyway!
