It is like an art exhibition, this wonderful walk!

Colour, shape, texture here at Sheffield Park.  I went on the spur of the moment, determined not to let shorter hours of daylight get me down.  If you are too busy, too lazy, too poor, live too far away, or not well enough to go this walk, here it is . . .

This is National Trust property so it does cost. I decided on an annual membership a while ago and it has been worth it.

I got talking to a fellow walker  trying to photograph fungi. DSC05679-001She told me how she turned her lens round for close ups and how she switched to monochrome for some things so I am  going to try it all out at home. This  was my effort her fungi.

We popped into the garden center/vine yard/wine cellar and shop down the same lane. I’ve been going to this place for over 20 years.   I used to take my mother regularly when we lived in London.

They have things you can’t get anywhere else, brew their own cider, make their own wine as well as importing from a small vineyard.

They used to have a very angry goose but he might have ended up in the pot. No sign of him today but some very interesting pot holders and things made by a blacksmith in the South of France.

If you do manage to get to Sheffield Park, look out for notices for different walks, information abut things to look at tucked into boxes at the side in the seats, labels telling you the species of the trees. The last photograph is fungi rather than mushrooms but could it be fairy ring? I do hope so!
