The marsh pond in the forest 🌲

Hi everyone,

I went for a walk up here today as its only 1 mile from me and up hill so its very good exercise, I sometimes see the wild boars here as they love bog land and water and shade. So I'm very careful as its their territory and marshy so its like a maize getting back with out getting bogged down. I'd just left and was walking along and this very loud snort warned me not to get any closer and this family of boars ran off grunting and squealing. My heart bpm increased rapidly for some reason...😱

I really like it up here as its off the paths and there are fallen trees to sit on and I love the trees growing under water. It's going to be lush when the forest turns green.

It feels like Spring is here so enjoy this weather folks...😊

You are brave Jerry, I bet you were relieved when they ran away instead of towards - the walk would have turned into a run 😊 you live in such a beautiful area.

Thank you Debs, they are shy and run off its only if you intimidate them or their young.

I am very wary of them but they come up by my home some nights and squeal and dig things up and then run off, they're the local vandals...😊

Local vandals 😁😁😁😁

Hi Jerry, Glad you go for your exercises, but please be careful, it also looks creepy, so avoid going during the night. πŸ˜‡

Hey thanks 22Mermaid, and thanks for the advice, I wouldn't go there at night as the forest looks really spooky at night any way.

Now I thought how swamp like it looks and because the trees are just coming into bud they look ghost like which I really like, so I know what you mean. 😊

It looks fabulous. I love seeing your photos of the forest changing throughout the seasons and that sounds like a good healthy walk to get your heart going in more ways than one πŸ˜„

Aw thanks Ali, I love how the forest is waking up with green shoots everywhere, walking in it is an awesome way to keep fit too. 😊

Exactly. I think it’s now called forest bathing. Submerging yourself in the forest for the benefit of your body and mind ☁️ πŸ™‚

Sounds good to me Ali 😊

Hi Jerry

I can understand your blood pressure went up - in those circumstances - glad you're safe!

Lovely photo.
