I can’t believe people don’t believe in global warming, or as it should be known as; climate change. It feels like, each year, our seasons are moving more and more out of sync and it’s kind of scary… but I’m not going to deny I’ve loved this hot summer we’ve had in the UK. Now, though? It’s not even September yet and summer is slipping into Autumn quickly.
I took the pupper out for a run in the park recently and snapped a few shots before all the green is gone, I just love our local park so here’s some appreciation.
First thing Juno ever does in the park is find another dog. She’s not one to play with every dog she meets but she always has to check to see if they meet her criteria of friend, or… meh. This guy was a ‘meh’ apparently. I don’t understand how she doesn’t enjoy every dog, like I do?
It wasn’t a cold day, but it was overcast. One of those ‘I’ll wear a jacket and then regret it’ days that are just… great! Some great wild flowers knocking about, though, so I can’t complain too much!
This is our local stork and I always see him when I wander through the park; always in different places and always sleeping. A bird after my own heart! I’m so impressed with myself for getting to the park as early as I did. At the weekends they have ‘park runs’, which is just a group of people barreling through the park and forcing walkers into the muddy grass – yay. Of course, they’re not supposed to but that always seems to happen to me. It’s, categorically, a dog park, too so excuse me whilst I fume every time I see a group of people running towards me!
The land is mostly marshy – historical fact; the famous ‘Lindow Man’ was found very close to here in a park across the way, and the whole area is basically a swamp. Makes for lovely green pictures in summer and very muddy walks in autumn and winter!
Can’t take Juno anywhere without her eating grass and drinking swamp water!
I am so proud of her, though. She’s 4 and finally getting her paws into water. She’s never swam before because she’s a huge baby but she jumped into this very shallow part of the river and even got her tummy wet!
No walk is complete without strolling through the church graveyard at the bottom of the hill I live on. I love the church and the graveyard here a lot! And look, proof that I went waking pretty early; this was the end of our two hour walk!
Sorry there are so many pictures! I just like to get them all uploaded in one shot because spacing them out is way too much planning for my brain!!
