Friday Walk

Decided to walk from home this morning so it was a 12Km route through the Suffolk countryside - quiet roads, lanes (including a section of the Hundred Lane which runs to the west of Westhorpe) & field edge footpaths. Bright & definitely breezy. Decided that a compilation was the best way to mark the day - the shady Kiln Lane, which took us into Westhorpe itself, some of the wild flowers & the bee-friendly field-edge Phacelia at Lodge Farm & some cock's foot grass along the verge on the way back. The lanes are ancient - the Hundred Lanes, of which there are still a few remaining in Suffolk, marked the boundaries between the administrative areas known as Hundreds set up back in Saxon times. Lodge Farm prides itself on combining modern agriculture with conservation methods - I Blipped some of its field-edge wild flower strips last summer. The most striking flowers on the walk were actually the grasses on the uncut verges - but as they were dancing around in the wind I didn't try to take more than one example!
