Come Take a Walk

Well another week has gone by .Today is Papa's birthday.Happy Birthday Chuck ( for my American readers Chuck is a North Lancashire term of endearment ) I've just reckoned up and realised we have been a couple for 43 years this year :0) married for 42.
I have been knitting and dyeing fibre this week. The fibre will be put in the shop shortly the knitting is being kept under wraps at the mo as it's all new designs and the patterns need tweeking.
So as there aren't any pics of projects etc I've decided to take you for a walk .
A few weeks ago we bumped into a man whilst on our usual railway walk and we got chatting about different walks . He mentioned Worden Park which is a park on the edge of a near by town . Now I have lived in our village since I was born and I'm ashamed to say I'd never been. The walk sounded nice as it was by water.
So off we went to explore and he was right .It was lovely . Loads of birds to see which was right up Papa's street as he is a keen birdwatcher and load of nooks and crannies for Meg to explore .`
Any way here's a walk through the woods .  :0)
 Snowdrops
 Masses of them
First of the ponds
 there's a little railway runs all round the park in Summer
 One of the stations
 Papa looking for birds
 Daffodils in bud.In a few weeks this banking will be a mass of yellow
First of the weirs
 Papa striding out
Second weir. The sound of water falling over these weirs is great
 Third weir
 The tree to which these roots belong was to tall for me to get it in a picture
 Papa in his Johnny Kingdom jacket the cubs bought him for Christmas
 I love this huge burr on this fallen tree
 Another pond
 Bluebell shoots.By May this will all be blue
 Last of the ponds .
Hope you enjoyed the walk. I plan to take pictures throughout the year to show the changing seasons .It should be interesting.
Well guess who's got another obsession :0) It's pod casts, they are great. So far I have listened to Aplayfulday
Yarns from the Plain  Miss Elle Knits and Ba Ba Black Sheep
I do have a favourite but it wouldn't be polite to say which it is but they are all great . If you are knitting /spinning/crocheting minded give them a whirl they are all on ITunes .
Well that's it for today It's taken me ages to do this blog as my stupid computer was on a mega go slow so I had to trasfer to the netbook.Anyway it's done now so enjoy :0)
