The Photo Gallery 182: A Favourite Place

lickey hills2

There is a place we spend so much time as a family it almost feels like it’s ours.
Like it is part of our heritage.
If we don’t visit at least once a week I feel guilty. Like I’m letter her down.
For she is Mother Nature, and here I feel like we touch forehead to forehead with her.

This is a place right on our doorstep (we are so lucky) which has provided us with soft landings on the leaf-strewn floor for our toddlers to land. It has offered up trees for our growing children to climb safely. It has hosted nature treasure hunts, picnics, walks in the rain, rambles with friends, and lots and lots and lots of trees for me. For yes, I have a bit of a tree thing. I’ve even had a blogger meet up here.

I have so many photos of these woods in every season, with kids, with dog, with friends.
And every one of them tells a story.
It is absolutely one of my most favourite places in the world – and it’s right on my doorstep.

    We have a woodland a short drive from ours, we love going there and taking the dog for good romp around. She manages to bring half the forest back, stuck on her tail!!

      Ha ha yes, the curse of a long-haired dog! That's why we picked one with little or no hair. It's just the kids who bring back most of the forest stuck in their hair now . . .

    Gorgeous photograph and love your feelings about your favourite place. This was a lovely post to read.

    It's really beautiful. It reminds me a lot of Center Parcs, but of course your wood is more 'real'. You certainly are lucky to have it on your doorstep.

  13. Fabulous, it makes me want to walk down that path.

  15. I'm never sure how I feel about pine forests, there is a sparseness about them and a lack of life that I find strange but I love the smell, I'm torn with them.

    A very beautiful place, every child should have a place where they can climb trees and take picnics.
