An Evening Stroll

I have mentioned the fields of gold behind our house before, they are slowly fading, but we have managed to get out and walk through them a few times.

A familiar sight we had seen driving in the car, but one we had never really got to explore. In our new home that has changed and we get to see the beautiful fields behind us as they grow and change.


We got to stop and look at the seed pods, it was great to see the actual part of the plant they make into the oil.


I love the fields they look so beautiful, especially when the sun is shining on them.


We carried on walking to see what was further round the corner and if we could get to Bestwood Country Park from the top of the hill. We couldn't but it did mean that we got to play with our shadows, I love how these two can be at each other one minute and the best of friends playing nicely the next.


From the top of the hill you can see for miles, we could see planes coming in to land at East Midlands  Airport and the cooling towers at Radcliffe on Soar, which are about 12 miles away.


There are more fields beyond these and we can't wait to see what they've got growing in them, we know we can get in to Bestwood Country Park from just a bit further down the road, so once the weather gets nicer we will take a long walk over there.

    1. They love a good stroll in the country and would have run around in the fields all evening if we'd let them :)
