Today’s Pictures: 18 Mar 21

Daffodils blooming.

‘Walking was a habit that was to stay with him all his life.’     Anuradha Kumar

I’m continuing the daily shots from our walks in the local forest for the moment. Another photograph from my collection will provide a wider view of the world and some of its wonders.
If you share on social media, more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19 can enjoy our natural beauty. Between us, we might even restore some love and respect for nature and help slow the damage we inflict on our world. Thank you.

    1. I can see the sense in preventing planting in wild areas, Noelle, but a prohibition related to private property seems a little heavy-handed. Many garden flowers are descendents of wild plants, of course, and we have primroses growing in the forest and their domesticated cousins, primulas, growing in our gardens.

          1. Home Owners Association, Stuart. It’s usually composed of the people living in an identified community. Here the HOA is run by the company building the houses, and will not be given over to us until the entire community is finished and then another community behind where we are. The rules are ridiculous and restrictive, dictating what we can have on our patios and backyard, what we can plant, what can be attached to the house and even the color of our curtains. We were not aware of most of the rules before we moved here and are not sure we can stand living under these rules for the 2-3 more years it will be until we, the community, can take over. We are considering selling and moving somewhere else, but have decided to wait for a year to see what happens. In the meantime most of us are flouting the rules!

            1. Ah, that sounds like a similar situation with some of our newbuilds, Noelle. But the British are generally not too concerned about such ‘rules’ and break them as a matter of course. ‘We will not be told what we can and cannot do’ is a common attitude here! We’ve only ever lived under sucha set of conditions once. We broke the rules and painted our house the colour we chose. No one complained and we never heard a word about it from the company! I suspect that here at least, these rulings are designed to pander to the conservative population rather than any real concern for uniformity. ‘We must keep out the riff-raff’ is a more important attitude with most purchasers than any other!

  2. Are those daffodils out now?? Such a beautiful sight! I see from your comment above that the beach was featured in “Broadchurch.” I watched that series and thought the area looked familiar. Lovely long beach for an oceanside walk.

    1. Yes, out now, Lynette. We pass them almost daily as they’re beside the track that takes us up, and often down, on our walks in the forest.
      The beach is lovely, but not wise to walk close to the cliff, erosion is causing parts of it to fall! So a walk needs to be closer to the sea than the cliffs.

  3. The daffs are just off one of our regular paths, Brenda.
    And the beach shot is on a part of the coast that featured in a very popular TV programme starring David Tennant and Olivia Coleman, Broadchurch. In fact, the body that was the subject of the investigation was discovered just about where the man and his dog are in the picture. But this was taken before the TV series was broadcast!
