An afternoon walk at Arlington Court

We decided to stay inland for this walk, so Arlington Court seemed the obvious choice.  We're really glad we went, the sun came out (for a change), there was nobody else around...lovely and peaceful








there was a lot of lichen hanging on this tree...
(actually not sure if this was moss or lichen - I'm sure someone out there in blog land can tell me)


and twigs on the ground ...useful for a close up...

    1. I think that should happen in the supermarkets too, they should clear everyone out for when I shop! lol ;)

    1. Yes, it's been mild but very wet here so far. Apparently all is to change this coming week, but we hope it will stay milder down here.

  4. Another beautiful place to visit -- And having it all to yourself, makes it even more enjoyable, and peaceful. And I say moss... :-)

  6. It's nice to see some winter sun but not so good seeing the trees so bare. I'm not looking forward to the Arctic blast we're expecting!

    1. William would love running around with TessaDog. Thanks for cnfirming the lichen, I edge towards that myself. It's a strange type of lichen, long and dangley.

  8. I`m going to vote for lichen. It looks very much like the lichen on our old oaks and hedgerow hawthorns.

    We visited Arlington Court again last summer, after a break of many years. A wonderful place, even on a rainy day ( which it was!).
