thermos travels...


An early start to visit a beautiful woodland to try and glimpse the beautiful march ritual of brown hare's boxing! We filled our trusty thermos flask with porridge to eat on our early morning walk. 


We found a lovely little bridge, which made a perfect place for a picnic! The woodland was covered with fresh green shoots of wild garlic. 




We found great sticks to make bows and arrows and deer antlers with! And when little legs got tired, we tied my scarf round the little mans middle and played horse!    


It was so good to be out in the spring sunshine, we had a 'bad hare day' and didn't see any boxing hares, probably due to our noise level! But we had a fab day out on our travels anyway!

  4. That sounds like utter bliss, hares or not. I just took the dog for a walk in the village wood. It really is Spring out there: sunny and tweety with tiny leaves emerging. Gorgeous.

  5. That looks like a really super day out. I'm so impressed with the porridge. How do you keep your porridge from turning into a solid lump? x
