Nature’s refuge


nature's refuge church

Crumbling stones

Gently moan.

Creeping foliage,

Home to mice,

Owls and bones.

Ramblers

Seeking solace,

Listen to

Nature’s songs.

Even on a winter’s afternoon, Ayot St. Lawrence’s ruined church is still romantic and beautiful. Tiny snowdrops surround the ancient graves like frozen tears. After our walk, we sat in the car drinking tea from a flask and eating home-made cake, whilst I scribbled away in my notebook.   Hertfordshire has so many delightful and atmospheric  villages to explore.

Weekly photo challenge: unexpected

I was told that this beautiful owl didn’t like having his picture taken. He was very grumpy with another photographer,  however unexpectedly,  the wise owl wasn’t put off when I asked him politely for permission to take his photo. Isn’t he mysterious and gorgeous!
