Just a short walk from our house, perhaps only five minutes, over the road, snuck down an overgrown bank, we found an overgrown path, which led to a secret grove….
A circle of pine trees with a floor covered by pinecones and pine needles, untouched by growing plants, yet surrounded by green vegetation such as above. A magical circle almost. If there are fairies, they certainly live here. 😏
And around the secret grove there was plenty of scope for adventure. Following a down trodden ‘path’ of overgrowth, led us towards a tiny stream. Maya and Alfie jumped over, but the gap was too wide for Ted. What to do? Problem solving. Let’s build a bridge…..
The bridge held our weight and we came across, to discover a wonderful hidden trail, that led us to the swamps surrounding the lake.
I have a feeling there are going to be a few mini wildlife trips here! 😉
Okay – so it’s not completely secret – people have been here before us…
