roaming the wilds of south west Surrey
I took this last week on a miserable, rainy evening. As I drove past Broadwater Lake in Farncombe, the clouds parted to let the sunset glow through so I stopped to take a picture with my phone. A couple of hopeful canada geese made a beeline for me, and the shapes of their wake along with the raindrops on the water made a nice shot, I thought.
A rare post from me, just to wish you all a Happy Easter and greet the arrival of Spring (although looking out of the window today, that might be debatable). Yesterday we walked the dogs to Hambledon church, a beautiful church and graveyard with a 1000 year old yew tree. I’ve written about it before; here and here. As well as the stunning tree, which you can get inside, it has really interesting gravestones with beautiful lichens and mosses.
Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day, and being Good Friday, the church had put a display on and there were figures and bible verses around the graveyard. I liked the figure kneeling in front of the yew, as if worshipping that magnificent tree.
I’ve fallen completely out of the habit of blogging this year, although I keep meaning to get back into it. I do still take pictures, though, despite my knackered camera. Here are a couple I took today, on a lovely crisp, sunny autumn day at Blackdown, just over the border in West Sussex.
