Elephant in the wood

Today, I’ve managed to use up all my energy on a walk through local woods, so gardening will have to yet again be postponed. I did however pick some tasty apples from our village community garden and some amazing rosehips as well as discovering new paths

which led to new curiosities. I can only imagine the bricks in the next picture must have formed part of a building – if only there were signs up to explain the history.

Fortunately, there are signs indicating how a wooden elephant comes to be looking out over the canal. One of the bargees crafts such and there was evidence of his skill elsewhere along the towpath, though it was too soggy to keep getting my camera out.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
