Woodland

Hello and welcome to another photo prompt at

I have chosen our word this week ... and it's simply
Woodland

You know I love the beach ... but I have a passion for woodland, forests and trees ... I simply couldn't live without trees around me ...
As a young girl, whenever I was troubled I headed for the woods ... Not something I could probably do today. I am fortunate that where I am we have lots of green land and I am right next woodland known as The Triangle which is part of the Pennine Trail where my "Eagle" tree has been standing guard for many years ...


Would you not agree that it looks like an eagle?


Every morning for years I would pass him and say hello...

Having owned a couple of German Shepherds ... exploring woodland was a joy and explore we did from Scotland to Cornwall


This was taken some years ago in Derbyshire and this one...


... In Wales

Everyday I would walk come hail rain or shine ... 
Winter ...


Through to summer...


 Some mornings it was hard to motivate myself ... but the beauty was always worth it.
Both my dogs detested the rain ... but still wanted to be in the woods and those times were probably the best when I think about it ... Sometimes we would shelter under a tree for half an hour - being at one with nature, listening to the pitter pattering of rain drops on the trees ... Meeting friends along the way...


On this path at a certain time of year it would be completely covered by tiny frogs no bigger than a finger nail ... To me woodland is just magical, calming and gentle ... nothing heals like nature

I and my friends at 


Would love to explore woodland with you ... link up your photos and tell us about them

I will be revealing the winner of my gift following the  birthday celebrations at 


Have a beautiful day

Beautiful post and photos Ros. I too couldn't live without the green of trees and plants, probably why it didn't take me long to realize I didn't want to to permanently in the north west of Australia...too much red dirt and grey vegetation. Love you eagle tree, I hug trees and feel the bark..it's nature, calming. Have a wonderful week Robyn

What can be more brilliant as walking with your dog early in the morning in the forest, enjoying birds' singing, breathing fresh air? When my dog was alive we liked to walk together... it was really wonderful! Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures!

You always show us such pretty shots Ros, but your eagle tree is really breathtakingly beautiful. This tree is bound to contain a soul (or maybe even more, who knows), looks magical to me! Hugs, Ira x

As a child I've often been in the woods too. I had a hollow tree as my home. Similar creatures like the bird I saw... It was very important for me to survive the childhood -
Your Foto remembers me.
That with the tiny little frogs I see here too.
Habe a great new week :-)

(I will join to the meme in any days)

Beautiful post Ros! I share your love for woodlands. The way you describe it, with the pitter patter of the rain and such, the calming and the magical feeling, that is exactly what woodland is for me. So thank you for your wonderful photo prompt, I loved taking part in it!

Lovely photos. The eagle looks quite medieval and seems to be guarding the path. Walking with your dogs in the woods sounds idyllic.
