Looking Back At Wonderful September Days

We are very fortunate to have enjoyed many visits to the New Forest, Hampshire, and plan to go again very soon. Whenever we go I so enjoy being able to take your time, take in the views and perhaps meander a little (I'm good at that! LOL!) come on Jan, I hear Eddie say. I was reminiscing about previous September days spent there and thought I'd do a post about it, well why not! So these are old photographs (the first three courtesy of Mr Google) but always nice to see, well I think so!


You often see thatched cottages like these


New Forest Cattle


New Forest Ponies


The New Forest Heathland is lovely


and walking through the very straight trees so enjoyable


You just can't beat it!
In these rather strange days of Covid 19
I think it's even more important to take time out and enjoy a little nature.
It's something we hope to do again soon.

Thanks for reading
All the best Jan

It is beautiful to see some snippets of Hampshire. Especially true since I like in New Hampshire. That makes it really interesting.

It is a favourite of mine. I like the Autumn with the changing colours and glorious fungi. I enjoyed your photos of a very special area.

Love that thatched cottage. What a neat place to go to get away from all of the problems around us these days.... Getting out in nature --and enjoying our flowers is MY way of coping with the horrible things going on in our country....

Hugs,
Betsy

Me ha encantado la cabaña de la primera foto. Nunca había visto una similar a esta. la arquitectura cambia según la climatología de la zona.

Espero que tengas una Feliz semana.

It looks idyllic, Jan. The charming cottage seems from a fairy story or days long ago -- and I love the cows. It sounds like a wonderful spot filled with many memories.

Beautiful trip and I love your new background, too (hope it´s new or I was just so concentrated on reading I didn´t notice?)...

The New Forest has a number of speciality birds too Jan. Hope you saw the Dartford Warblers and a Hobby or two.
