Join Me In A Dander Where I Live

I am lucky to live here. Sometimes you don't 'see' what's round you and then when you take some photographs it gives a whole new appreciation. This is my usual route with my grandchildren. Yesterday we were collecting conkers (chestnuts)

Found One

Picking and Feeding Brambles to the Dog.
The Hedgerows are laden

The Majestic Mountains of Mourne in the Background

Pity About the Wheelie Bin

Just beyond the trees Lough Neagh, the biggest Lough/Lake in the UK

Making Friends and Meeting People

The last Bend

And Home

The Conker Haul

It's wonderful having such beauty on your doorstep isn't it. Pity you can't eat conkers!

Clabby - We were in Fermanagh a couple of weeks ago on the way back from Donegal. It is so lovely there. We should have called for a cuppa lol

Oh my, what a gorgeous area you live in and how lucky you are. I am truly envious. Your grandkids are adorable and what a treat to even talk a walk up and down that cozy lane.

what a lovely part of the world you live in - and what a great haul of conkers. There's definitely something special about conkers, they are so glossy and beautiful.

You live in such a beautiful part of the country Brenda. Thank you for sharing such a lovely walk with us.

We are so lucky to have green fields, hills and the Lough in such close proximity. Northern Ireland is a nice place to live.
