Bliss

The path alongside the cricket field

Bliss in June is to take a walk with the dog along the path by the cricket field, a tunnel of green luring you through the lush hedgerows. Early morning walks are the best as the birds begin their calls, blackbird and thrush, rook and starling.

We do a loop around the sports field and head across for a hole in the fence. This brings us out by the river. When its full there is a reverse wave several feet down the banking.

We walk across the cricket field, through the village to the allotments. Ours is by the river. Unlike some of the more regimented plots ours is wild and free, chives mingle with buttercups, nettle with raspberry, dandelion with potatoes.

Our lupins are a joy to see, especially as these are grown from seed and now provide a blissful mound of pink and purple spires.

Catching the early light through the leaves of the rainbow chard or the nigella with the macro lens last year was a special joy.

Here is the village in Autumn- the houses around the fishing dams.

    I didnt know whether to share this on PhotosThatInspireWords.wordpress.com because of the amazing photos or Writer’s Work Lab because it was so well written. I miss the beach and ocean in southern CA snf flowers that bloom endlessly. HERE IN NEVADA, a little after one year since i left from Oceanside, CA to Las Vegas, NV on a 15 hour never again Greyhound bus ride…I am still trying to find beautiful places i can feel connected to nature here. In the big, dusty, dry, desert, I hope to discover more places that showcase the simple things here in the coming year.

    1. Thanks very much! We don’t realise how much we need to connect to the ground. It’s goes back so far in our inheritance but we need that healing soil to nurture us and our places.
