Another shady nook
Photo: Harry Cunliffe (Panasonic DMC-FZ38)
The title is spot on Harry & its a beautiful shady nook to pass on your daily exercise.
Very nice indeed, you can almost hear the birds singing.
My early childhood in one photograph.
Lovely and peaceful scene, I can just imagine the sounds of this babling brook plus the early morning birdsong
the trees are just starting to bud. lovely
I consider myself lucky to go to a place like this for 'exercise' nearby. Ordinarily, I probably wouldn't do. The situation makes you more appreciative of what is around about and taken for granted..lovely photo.
In Wigan's green and pleasant land.
Very nice, Harry.
What a lovely scene,I can almost hear the rippling of the water..Elizabeth will love this,I hope she looks in today..
Lovely Harry thankyou for brightening me up at these sad times.
Lovely pic,looks so peaceful.
What a beautiful Spring Scene. I can almost hear the echoing shouts of children on this Good Friday morning but perhaps not this year. We used to take our dogs in Borsdane Wood and there is certainly a beauty about it on a cool sunny morning but I always found it rather spooky and felt as if someone was watching. "By a Babbling Brook" was a favourite song of my Mam's and will always remind me of her. Lovely photo.
Many memories of this place,wish I was there now.
Lovely shot..hope everyone is ok...thought I would pop in here and see what was happening...stay safe...cheers!!
I can see all that edible wild garlic is coming up.
Thanks all, glad you like it. just been up the woochie steps!!!!
Were you paddling Harry?
Nicely caught picture.
Lizzie , welcome back to Wigan World. Missed your comments. How are things in Adelaide.? They have shut the borders in WA where my daughter lives.Stay safe.
How soft is the music ,
the sound on the ear ,
the drink from the heavens ,
but yet it’s so near .
It babbles by gently ,
trinkets of sound ,
globules of jewels ,
this brook on the ground..
Hello Maureen !yes, you are right, one of my favourite walks, so lucky to live nearby.
Slendid picture, Harry. Thanks.
Distant now, is the low and scary Mall,
From this my bright, engaging nook
Of 'merging buds by passing-treetop-calls,
And priceless gems that gleam beneath its lapping flow.
Brock is here - I've seen his furry path -
And soon, perhaps, I'll see within this savoured nook,
The Dipper, the bugloss, and behind the sweeping gorse,
The great display that gilds the early season's time.
Lizziedownunder..great to see you back, stay with us. I think it's time to open a bottle of sherry..cheers.
Agreed, Garry, and mine's a double. Veronica will join us too. We've already got through a bottle of parsnip wine, eh, Veronica?! Welcome back, Lizziedownunder. xx
Welcome back, lizzie..x
It's my favourite Irene - especially when it's bottled in Prague ...
