Mabie Forest

Still catching up with our trip to Dumfries and Galloway!

At first we though, maybe we chose the wrong day to go to Mabie Forest. It was the middle of the school holidays and it's a recreational area with mountain bike tracks, so when we arrived it all felt a bit overcrowded and busy. But we soon lost ourselves along one of the quiet footpaths

We met some toads in the pond, who obviously had Spring on their minds!

I really liked seeing the empty beech nut cases against a background of wild garlic

What a pretty walk. The beech nut cases are quite artistic looking in that stage.
