Waiting

To see what the woodpecker’s art project on the birch will become.

    1. Indeed. Are you still able to go for walks? The rules here are that we can go out once a day on local trails as long as we comply with social distancing. It has raised some food for thought about access to the countryside more generally, a topic that has been contentious in England for centuries.

      One real positive in my village is that our golf course, one of my least favourite neighbours, is shut and local people are now out walking over there instead, just like they used to before the club arrived.

      1. I live in a very rural area with a lot of protected land and very few people. Most people here normally walk little, but lately, I’m apt to see road walkers (we don’t have sidewalks, except right in the village). In all the years I’ve lived here, I’ve come across folks in the woods only a handful of times. Social distancing comes easy out here!

  1. Nice one! We have spring slowly coming but mountains are still under snow. Not that we can go much around anyway, but even a walk around a block will do most of the time šŸ™‚

    1. We have had a sudden warm spell here and it is 20c today, but closer to normal next week. Glad you’re still getting some fresh air even if it isn’t quite as wild as usual.

  2. Indeed this is a tense period of waiting with a sense of stasis (even if we are on a kind of a precipice edge) so its nice to see the evidence of changes in nature in your photos – especially the changes brought about in the spring.
    Enjoy your walks in the springtime countryside.
