Making the most of a sunny morning, I set off on the Wellington Trail where the path starts up on a hill and descends through the woods to a boggy area near the railway line. I always miss the wildlife like sloworms, Dartford warblers, nightjars, adders and green tiger beetles, they all hide when I'm walking nearby but the flowers and plants keep still and are easy to spot.
The light was particularly good near the railway.
Emerging near the old station which is now a beauty parlour, a few shops line the road.
You never know who might be at the shops these days.
Just to round off the trail, a few colourful azaleas scream out for a photo although a Gardner is in the middle of cutting the grass in front of them.
