5 in 5 is the brainchild of Sandie at itchifingers, you can read all about it here.
It isn't really co-incidental that both Sandie's and my posts are both titled "A walk in the Park", because I copied her idea. GM and I like to walk to the park as often as conditions allow, as it's quite close to home and gives us an opportunity to stretch our legs with a downhill walk, a level walk and then uphill again to get home. As we had a sunny interval between the showers this afternoon we decided to make the most of it.
On the way down the hill was this silver birch, I really love the bark.
It was quite muddy underfoot as we neared the bottom of the hill,
on the trail of the lonesome pine.
One of the trees near the lake seems determined to keep hold of its leaves as long as possible.
Look, up there behind the trees on the left is the path to get back home.
