“The hardest walk is walking alone, but it’s also the walk that makes you the strongest.” – Anon.
This Saturday the weekend challenge over on Weekly Prompts is Walkabout
Following the government instructions to ‘Stay at Home’ and my reluctance to mix with villagers coming up here for exercise, my walks across the lane during lockdown have been few and far between. This week, however, I took my chances, and nipped across to visit the new foals.

Apologies – They were far back in the field so not the clearest of images
A little further down the lane one of the farmhands was rolling the rich grass, this field along with two others will be cut for hay next month.
I paused awhile to take in the view.
Last weekend I took a stroll across the fields nearest to the house, but the heavy rainfall during the winter months that caused the fields to become bogged down, also caused deep hoofprints and after they became hard and dry, taking a walk on my farm was hazardous.
Recently a farmhand twisted his ankle, and the other day I lost my footing and fell over.
Hurray, since last weekend not only have the fields over the lane been rolled but the ones over this side too, making walking over the fields much easier!
On the western edge of one of my fields is a wooded area.
It’s a very peaceful spot and at this time of year the woodland is particularly pretty, and as the daffodils die off, bluebells and other wildflowers take their place.
Walk With Me Part 2 will follow later in the week.
