52 Weeks of Nature :: July Week 3


We moved to our current house from a lovely village on the outskirts of Doncaster.  Occasionally we like to go back and visit (as we only moved along to the next-but-one village on the bus route).


There’s a lovely plant nursery there with a wonderful public garden that is one of my favourite places to visit locally.  We arranged to meet up with some friends in the cafe there before going for a walk around the gardens, but arrived a little early, so took some time to walk up and down the lane nearby.


Gold winners at Chelsea Flower Show, Walkers Nursery, as I said, is a favourite destination, not only for me, but for the children and after some very nice drinks and cakes we let the children loose in the gardens.





Birds Foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)


A tiny forget-me-not – not sure which one.

One of the most unusual things we found are these cracks in the ground, which we guessed were caused by the coniferous trees in this area sucking up all the moisture from the ground around.


We also found what looks like a raspberry growing in the recess of a tree!


We are blessed to have such a wonderful place on our doorstep!
