Flowers and Fairies

This week I stayed local and went for a short walk at Fairy Glen, near Appley Bridge, Lancashire.

Fairy Glen is one of the most picturesque woodlands in the area especially at this time of the year. It is designated as a Biological heritage Site for its ancient woodland of oak, birch, ash and alder. The floor was carpeted with bluebells, wild garlic,  red campion. and marsh marigold. The waters of  Sprodley Brook have over time, cut down through the underlying sandstone to create the steep Fairy Glen valley, which has spectacular waterfalls and cliff faces.

My aim today was to photograph some of the wild flowers.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
