A pleasant weekend

I spent Saturday in the woods and cooked a vegetable curry for evening meal.

I was sleeping on a pole-bed and using my US Modular Sleep System.

There was a beer festival with a band playing nearby, so we headed there for the evening.

I went walking with friends today and we found a really large Hazel bur (the first Hazel bur I have ever seen).


An even more impressive find was the largest Blackthorn that we have ever seen (this “Blackthorn” was subsequently identified as a Crab Apple)!

I wouldn’t even like to try to guess as to how old it might be.

One thought on “A pleasant weekend

  1. I would have been sorely tempted to take the hazel burr to make something from. A real rarity.

    The sloe looks like a champion tree . . . (actually I know that Sue is quite small!)
