Wordless Wednesday: Scents of April

The stay-at-home restrictions have been eased and we can now roam within our own council area. It’s been nearly five months since we last walked in this forest and there’s lots to sniff!

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Eliza, it’s been too long! Unfortunately we were all given the same restrictions even though our covid numbers were lower than in other parts of the country. We’re grateful to be able to explore our own council area again and from tomorrow we’ll be able to travel country-wide πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ

  1. Glad your restrictions have been eased and you were able to explore “new” territory. I’m sure many new scents had been deposited since your last visit. It looks like Eivor and Pearl are really enjoying this outing!

  2. Beautiful and wonderful pictures dear Xenia. Nice to know that you can all go out after five months of lockdown. Here in Mumbai, India where I stay we have again gone under lockdown so we are house bound for may be a month or two. Cases are rising everyday like crazy. Nice post. Take care and stay safe.

  3. SMiLes Dear Xenia We’ve Received Our
    Vaccinations Katrina Gets Her Final
    Shot On Monday As Age comes
    Before Beauty in This Go
    Around of Life’s
    Rewards Hehe…

    Where i Live is
    Rural Enough Where
    Pandemic Didn’t Aim
    Its Balance As Deadly on Humans
    Excessive in Density of Populations…

    However Sadly THere Lives Ignorance
    Where Freedom is More Important than the
    Safety of Lives Where i Live Hopefully A More
    Formidable Enemy Does Not Visit Ignorance For


    Who Value
    Freedom over

    Lives of the Vulnerable….

    1. Thank you kindly dear Fred and great to hear you’ve been vaccinated too πŸ’š We are blessed we live in a quiet area as well and hope the tourist numbers and the irresponsible behaviour we saw last year from large groups wild camping and leaving more than just their footprints won’t be repeated as they put everyone’s health at risk, especially in rural villages with an ageing population πŸ™

      1. SMiles Dear Xenia i Was
        Most Shocked That
        The Area Bishop And
        Priest Didn’t Require
        The Elder Demographics
        To Wear Masks At

        Church to
        Protect What
        They Name
        The Body Of


        It Felt Like
        The Whole
        Show Instantly
        Became A Sham
        With No Shame

        And It
        Was A
        One of
        For The Price
        Of Ignorance
        When Life or Death
        Becomes Politics


        Love Sadly
        One Must Distance
        Oneself From Ignorance



        Love When
        Life Saving
        Measures Are Required

        i Was In Charge Of
        Lifeguards As Athletic
        Director Of A Military


        In This Case

        i Would Have Had
        No Choice Yet to Fire
        The Head And Lead
        Lifeguard The Bishop
        And Priest Yet True


        No Ill Feelings
        Just Doing My



        Human Beings.. πŸ†˜

      2. Yes Dear Xenia Now i
        Focus On The Beauty
        Of NaTuRE A Place
        Is Good
        To me Always
        Ever Since i Was
        A Youth When Ironically
        Boys From
        Boys Are
        Not Allowed
        Here To Smile
        By Physical Threat

        The Rest
        Of Nature
        Is Not

        This Way
        When Nice
        Decides Not To Be

        Nice Love Wins
        In The Longest
        Runs Dear FRiEnD
