02/05/2021: Blackweir Woods

Well this is a very green post isn’t it?

A couple of weeks ago I took another late afternoon stroll over to the little woods just over the Blackweir Bridge. Why is it that I never take a morning stroll? Maybe one day I’ll be somebody that does that, we’ll see.

Anyway, now that the Blackweir Bridge has been declared Covid-secure, it’s nice to be able to pop over to the woods with ease. They’re not exactly big in size – or at least the bit that I walk around isn’t – but I always feel like I’m in the middle of the countryside when I’m inside them, despite being in the middle of a big city park.

At the time I walked around here it was prime bluebell and wild garlic season, so the floor was carpeted in one direction with blue, and with white in the other. Probably the best place to go within walking distance from here to see that kind of thing, anyway.

I must admit that the problem with not keeping up to date with walks is that I can’t quite remember the random thoughts that were no doubt swimming round my head as I did this walk. Then again, I’m not sure that’s necessarily a bad thing, either.

Must try harder!
