Just a September Day
It is a lovely September day and I am inviting you to come on a walk in the Darwin Forest at Derbyshire. This is in the in the beautiful Peak District in the heart of the UK.
Let us start our walk here..
It is quite a nice day here in September, the sun isn't shining but the weather is quite warm so we start our walk at the beginning of a forest trail.
We look at the forest through the trunks of a few trees
To get a sense of perspective, we take a look at part of the forest through a few tree trunks. We did not bring any coats with us so are hoping that it doesn't rain. This can be wishful thinking in an Autumn day in the UK.
Flora and Fauna
We look at the flora and fauna the grows on the ground, an marvel at the green leaves amongst the brown leaves on the forest floor.
The forest floor
Looking down at the forest floor in Autumn many of the deciduous trees there have lost their leaves. We can hear the 'crunch crunch' of the leaves as they rustle under our stout walking boots...
The forest Canopy
There is nothing quite like looking upwards into the forest Canopy at the sky and appreciating nature...
It gives us a sense of smallness when we stand up against these mighty trees of the forest...
The foxgloves look spectacular but care must be taken with these poisonous flowers especially when out walking with young children and animals...
A Pile of Logs
One of the things that is plentiful in the forest is a good supply of logs. Not only do these have practical uses for making all sorts of wooden artifacts, but they also act as a home for many types of woodland insects that hibernate through the winter months.
A Pond in the Forest
Whilst walking we come across a picturesque little pond. It is scenes such as this that make you feel so in touch with nature...
The Forest Pond ..another view
Looking through the grasses, another view of the forest pond comes into sight.
Luckily I took my camera on this walk...so that I can peruse the pictures later at my leisure.....
I enjoyed the walk and I hope that you did too my friend.
I expect you are ready for a sit down and a nice hot cup of tea or coffee now.
Here is a clean looking cake shop at nearby Bakewell. Let us stop here for a cake and a rest before going down to the river...maybe you have heard of the famous Bakewell tart which originated from here...
Down by the River Wye at Bakewell, Derbyshire
After a rest we take a stroll down to the banks of the river Wye and marvel at the river bridge and wildfowl enjoying their day too...
Watching the Geese
Let us go down and have a closer look at the geese there to finish off our day in the Peak District.
Thank you for joining me on my day out my friend- I hope you enjoyed your day. Maybe you will come along at another time when I have my next day out
