this is the big one at the top of the Broad Walk the colour has changed so much in a week
this is the only one that is any good (admittedly the grating doesn't make a great (sorry!) background
hot chocolate for a change (though it wasn't cold outside despite the rain - I normally only have hot chocolate when it's cold) - and a new cake to try - pineapple and carrot.... sounded so odd a combination I had to try it.
delicious, although not sure I could taste much of either particularly!
so I squelched in the grass instead so I didn't slip
tiny little toadstools - I couldn't get the whole thing as with the wider angle on all you got to see was the grass as it spread over a wide area
from the other side
the rain was making patterns in the water
but the reflections in the lake were just gorgeous through it
this is a phone one
watching all the umbrellas!
as I walked down the path, I saw a small tree with a huge number of funghi in the soil at the base....
it looks like I've smeared the lens with vaseline!
I like it
for a few minutes it almost seemed to have stopped raining...
the small one was still on it's branch too but I still couldn't get a decent photo
(it had been closed for watering when I was there the first time)
still plenty of colour at the far end of the Broad Walk
but my knees were protesting from all the walking and not enough resting.
so it was time to head home
thanks for keeping up with it (if you have!)
it was a fabulous day, even though the rain was relentless - at least it wasn't heavy and I had to keep juggling with the
but SO worth it!
