A Walk in the Woods

One day last week we went for a walk. I  was a bright, but cold day and just an ordinary woodland footpath in winter

bare trees and snowdrops in flower:

There was no breeze as we went down to the river:

There’s a little hut on the riverside, now unused and peering through the window we could see it was half full of dead leaves.

We carried on through the woodland walking away from the river into a disused little quarry:

and then we came across some strange objects hanging from the bare trees.

Shells and stones:

bones (little fish?):

and then on one side of a tree a toy scarecrow:

and on the other a totem:

Now I’m wondering – what is it all about? What’s the story?

  1. You know, Margaret, those things remind me of a story I read recently, but I can’t remember exactly. I bet you could write a whole crime novel around the little hut, the forest, the hanging objects. You didn’t stumble over a bone or two did you? LOL
