How Does Your Garden Grow - Week 35

I had a post scheduled for How Does Your Garden Grow last week. However being away from the internet and in true relaxation mode I didn't link up. If you would like to see how our garden has grown over the year you can here.

While we were away I took a lot of photographs and enjoyed taking time out with my camera in the woodland. This week I am sharing some of those pictures for How Does Your Garden Grow.

Sherwood Forest


There are many old trees with metal bands around them. This is to help preserve the trees for longer.








Around Sherwood Forest Center Parcs




The pictures above are from a lake and stream that was at the back of our villa.
I loved all the interesting textures and colours from a huge patch of thistles on a hill side.




Pictures taken during one of our many bike rides around the resort.
The beautiful, peaceful view that we woke up to everyday during our stay.
As always I am sharing my How Does Your Garden Post with the lovely Manneskjur

  1. Looks like some lovely woodland. I've never seen trees with the metal bands around them before. Bike rides in the forest sounds like a great way to spend the day!

  2. Looks a lovely place to explore. Sherwood Forest isn't too far from us but we also seem to end up at Clumber Park instead! I love the bark on the tree. It's just waiting to be to be touched.

  6. I aways wondered what the big metal belts were for - now I know! Always learning!
    This reminds me a lot of near where I grew up, the Forest of Dean - happy memories being stirred, thank you for joining in and making me think back. Hope you had a good break x
