P is for Poet Poetry and Prose - yes it is ABC Wednesday this week across the world - and a walk today in a Paradise of wild flowers and birdsong.
Mary Webb author and poet lived locally in these parts - at Spring Cottage on Lyth Hill in Shropshire-and she left a legacy of literature which celebrates her life.
The information board at the beginning of our walk today - gives a taster of the poetry of Mary Webb - click on the pic for a more detailed look - a collection of the poetry of Mary Webb can be found in her book of poems Spring of Joy
The walk tody was through Spring Coppice an ancient woodland to the south (I think)of the summit of Lyth Hill
These old trees now knarled and bent must have seen the many moods of this sometimes troubled lady
Young trees jostle with the old to show how nature rejuvenates herself in new growth
The pathways wind to and fro on the hillside - nature at her best
Bluebells breathtaking in their vivid blue
and nodding wood anemones hid under the undergrowth
The sun shone through the canopy above and birds sang - surely not much has changed since those many years ago
