Books, writing, reading, words and images. I love them; do you?

Today’s Pictures: 27 June 20

An arched way.

Trying to brighten the day for those people isolated indoors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today is the start of a period of intensive work for me; I’m working on the final edit of my WIP prior to sending it off to my publisher. This means I need to concentrate on the novel. I’ll continue to post pictures, but I’m unlikely to add many words until the book is done, so please bear with me.

If you get pleasure from this, please share it, so others can enjoy it, too. Thank you.

    Beautiful photographs my friend. I really blew up the forest photo and noticed that the ferns which I think are beautiful are just like the ferns that grew everywhere in Kentucky. My husband in enchanted with your photography and is looking up your area of the world. Have a wonderful weekend with your sweet wife. Love and hugs to you both. ❤️💕💐Joni

      Thank you, Joni. Tell your husband the ferns are mostly either bracken or male ferns (all ferns are bisexual, so the name is a bit of a misnomer. There is also a slightly more delicate form called the ‘ady fern!). You have to be careful if you venture into the bracken (it can grow to over 7 feet tall) as it can host tics from boar and deer that sometimes carry a dreadful disease called Lymes Disease. Needless to say, we keep away from touching the bracken.
      The Forest of Dean, where most of the pictures are taken, is in Gloucestershire, close to the border with Wales.
