Therapy and a Walk

( Written as Yesterday) Today I am not feeling so sparky - I have a bout of Shingles which are totally unpleaasant, apparently caused by a breakdown in the immune system - the doctor has prescribed a course of medication which should halt the spread of the infection - I have read the information leaflet - as you do - and the side effects could lead to confusion and dizziness - so whats' new then!! I have decided that therapy is needed - so a short walk on the hillside close by was the outcome. Again I can't guarantee the logic of Blogger and picture posting - hopefully they will go up in the right order- well we shall see!
Shafts of sunlight beamed down from the heavy clouds today - during my walk - it all looked a bit unsettled - very cold - but only frost - no snow
My favourite tree - always a welcoming sight as I pass - standing here as it has stood for many a year.
Have you ever tried tree hugging? so rewarding giving you a feeling of inner peace.
This broom tree in the pathway is building up to burst into bloom - it will be a yellow mass in a few weeks - lighting up the hillside - (can you see my favourite tree in the background?)
I glanced up at the age old rocks above - they must hold many tales of past times!
The gorse was out today - as always - a brilliant yellow - Dusk was approaching as I left the hill - lingering over Caer Caradoc in the distance I am hopefully going to link up with Skywatch and Nature Notes - why not pop over with me ?


  1. Oh Jane, so sorry to hear about your shingles. They sound thoroughly unpleasant. Hope you're feeling better soon. The pictures are gorgeous. Nothing like a crisp walk to lift your spirits.

  2. Very nice photos.

    Regards and best wishes

  3. Nice shots. Makes me want to wander on a walk, too.

    So sorry to hear about the shingles. Nasty little buggars.

  4. Sorry to hear about the shingles. Most unpleasant from what I've heard. Have you been under a lot of stress lately? A lovely brisk walk sounds like perfect therapy to me. Hope you're feeling better very soon.

  5. I hope you will feel better soon, your pictures are beautiful ! wished I could see that all "life" !

  6. A walk with nature is always great therapy. I hope you feel better soon!
