Walking in the Nature Preserve

We decide to take another walk around the Nature Preserve

This is called Upwood Meadows ... the fields have cattle in them in the summer so there are "stiles" between each field

Zoe (Barry's girlfriend) joined us this we were walking along this stretch someone was walking towards that looked familiar. It was my cousin Norman & he was very surprised to meet me in the woods!!

This is entering Lady's Wood where I played alot when I was a is so beautiful in the summer as there are so many wild becomes "carpeted" with bluebells!

If you want a 6 mile hike you go in this direction which takes you to Great Ravely.

This is the pond we used to fish in....we would tie string around jam jars & scoop up tadpoles!

Looking back at Nigel & Susan's house........which is also the house we all grew up in.

This tree has a story.......when we were kids my brothers (all 3 of them) dared me to climb it. Hey, I was a tomboy I could do anything......problem was they all ran home & when I looked down there was a herd of cows staring up at me! I spent most of the afternoon in that tree & I still haven't forgiven them! I know how to carry a grudge!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
