Walking And Talking

We've wandered awhile along this path leading by Stargoose and Hanglands, those ancient fields where ancestors trod the heavy land turned by the plough. We've been travelling this way now for nearly a year and, apparently, this is post number 200. I find that hard to believe. How did we get here?


Post 100 was back in October when autumn colours were on the land. We stumbled on through the autumn mists....


....and we seem to have seen some beautiful horses throughout our travels. I know that at least one of my fellow travellers is very fond of her horses. We plunged into the very brief winter we've had this year...


....then, when home in the warm with a steaming cup of tea, I fiddled about on the computer and produced new images....


But spring began to show its hand earlier than usual...


....and we wandered from the countryside into the city of Cambridge. "This is my walk so I can take you where I like - I just hope you like it too"


We've had a story and a song or two along the way and I've enjoyed your comments too; sometimes they've suggested new places to go. We returned to the country and I got involved in the rough untidy side of things.....


....but then the weather turned warmer and flowers burst forth....


....Mr Fox visited early one morning. I haven't seen him since but this little fellow is often around...


Who knows where we're going next on this walk? But I hope you'll come along too. I enjoy your company.

Take care.

  2. If you don't mind the company, I totally love following you on your walks. I've seen so much of a country that I love, yet have never set foot on it's shores. Thank you, John. Count me in!!!

  3. John, I could hear Fats Domino singing in the background: "We're walking, yes indeed, and we're talking...." and it has been a most enjoyable walk and chat. I look forward to a couple of hundred more walks and talks. Jim

  5. I'll be there! I've tagged along most your walks John; always a treat and it's nice to recount too isn't it? Enjoyed this post of reminiscing... That's what I love about photography, it holds onto something close to your heart (or not) and stays in the digital memory box now hopefully for eternity :).

  8. I shall certainly be coming along on your future walks! It was very satisfying to discover where your bog title came from, I've often wondered and meant to ask you. Field names had never occurred to me for some reason! Round here the field names are much more prosaic - Harecroft is about as romantic as it gets!

  9. I've enjoyed walking along with you across those fields, down the lanes past cottages and farms through villages and into the city. I look forward to accompanying you on your further adventures:)

  13. It's been very pleasant to share your ramblings. On a cold, snowy winter day, I enjoyed going for a stroll around Cambridge, admiring the wonderful architecture and history. The great photos of birds,animals, plants and landscapes always enrich my day. So I'm looking forward to many more strolls through the English countryside.

  15. Stick with me, folks! I can't help but think what a joyous raggle-taggle mob we'd make as we rambled through the land!

  16. I certainly will be joining you for more walks John. Well done on the 200 posts, it's really not as easy as I'm sure most people think to get something up on a regular basis. Looking forward to many more walks through the countryside.
