Daily Walks in Lockdown



While we’re under lockdown and the permitted morning dog walk is the highlight of the day. Warwickshire in Spring is so beautiful and I’m trying to record a little each day: it’s changing quickly at the moment, getting greener all the time.

I’m dedicating these to everyone who isn’t fortunate enough to be able to stroll out into the countryside each day.

Here’s today’s walk (April 13th 2020): Wilmcote to Great Alne. Hedgerow: undergrowth with dandelions.

All the daily walks are on Facebook and Instagram
