The Other Side of the Hill

We walked a differenet part of Corstorphine HIll today, starting at the most beautiful bus stop in Edinburgh where the verges are left unmown for the flowers including buttercups and common spotted orchids

We then walked through the meadow where the grass is only mown to provide paths between the flowers and the rest of the meadow is yellow with buttercups

and the lovely Yorkshire Fog grass

It was very warm out there so we were glad to find the shade of the woodland. Look at the lovely shadows in the elder leaves (which struck me as perfect for Shadow Shot Sunday!)

and these wonderful tree roots 

We walked for a long time through parts of the woodland I don't walk through very often but we eventually joined up with the path we usually walk on Fridays and met this lovely young kudu in the zoo, which, along with its whole family was visible from the path!

Out and About for 30 Days Wild.
