My sister, Bentley and I went for a really good long walk at Badbury Rings last week, an Iron Age Hill Fort, near Wimborne in Dorset. DSC_0550Another walk towards my  17 for 2017 target.DSC_0554

I am always trying to catch Bentley unawares as, like most dogs, he doesn’t like having his photo takenDSC_0553

We walked round the ramparts, across the top and then round the back of the Rings

Breeze, blow, Bentley with branch, Badbury, bees, boat and barn (and later on, back for blanket, a brew and banana cake)

This willow was a-buzzzzzzzzzzzzzin with bees, both honey and bumble. DSC_0586We tried for ages to get some good photos, but failed, imagine a loud and constant hum DSC_0589accompanied by birdsong from the woods beyond.

The boat had seen better days and was probably home to many little creatures

The barn, festooned with ivy,

another wildlife haven.

Then back home for delicious cake made for us by my lovely niece

who was very happy to receive her Dorset Hedgerow Blanket

She is at Uni studying to be a vet in Glasgow, so it will be nice to have something from home to snuggle under in the evenings, even though it is now officially Spring.

Happy Spring Equinox one and all!
