Next stop was the Dark Hedges just outside Armoy. This was also a first for me and I was keen to take a few photos. This country road is covered by some very beautiful old beech trees. Allie, my wife didn’t like them though, Dark for a reason, it’s haunted by a Grey Lady. Why is it always a grey lady?
Well, It’s not called Bluebell Wood but it should be this week. This is my local Killynether Wood and yesterday evening after finishing a long week at work, I popped home grabbed the good lady wife and dogs and headed for the trees in the evening sun. Was well worth it.
My work has taken me through Killyleagh in County Down a lot recently and I spotted this tree on the rise of a hill. After the third time I just had to take the camera with me for a snap to share. Loads of nice image trees about but always hard to get a photo with a uncluttered backdrop. If you look carefully, you can just about see the old rope hanging from the bottom right branch were the swing used to be. At least I hope that’s what it there for!! I’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones lately
Spotted these Scarlet Elf Cup Fingi on a recent walk.What a great name for these.
Back in December I made this post about a famous tree in my area. I always thought the BBC were on the ball but they are only now catching up

Sometimes it worth getting up a little earlier.
