Fortifying Photo Post

When your morning greets you like this:

World Book Day, children, kids, education, books, school, learning
Scary Child or World Book Day Bear (The Hobbit)

…there’s nothing for it but to Seize the Day…(once I’ve dispatched the kids).

At first my feet stick in the claggy legacy of a recent lashing of wind and rain:

Mud, Glorious Mud

But thankfully Knole Park’s long shadow-patterned paths are drying quickly in the morning sun.

White aeroplanes glide easily across the bright blue sky, as gracefully light as birds. The air is beautifully still.

The Not a Treeo comes into view, and gives me the usual uphill push with its ever-changing reward. I smile at the patiently curious deer.

Almost home. I stop and turn to steal one last look at the shadows stretching from this slant of a tree across grassy anthills.

Tomorrow the rain will return, and with it dark skies, no shadows, but the same super squelch of mud.

I go home to prepare to face my scary skin-changer Hobbit bear, Beorn – now I’ll be ready 😉
