Botanical Walks

I used to know the names of all the flowers, trees, and crawly creatures that we encountered in the garden, or on walks in the fields and up the hills. I still know butterfly names, but am no botanical expert anymore. I do still love to note what’s flowering as I walk with one or both of the dogs. 

If Maisie is coming, the walk must be very slow – she is old and likes to amble. Though Chewie, a three year-old shih tzu, prefers to scamper and toddle as fast as he can, walking slowly does leave time to appreciate the hedgerows. On our last longer walk, I had my camera with me, and snapped some of the flowers we passed, though I still can’t remember all their names.
