The Rotary Club took it on and have done wonderful things with it. There's been a lot of planting and path making and maintenance.
Up until recently we've always taken our dogs to the beach. They adore the beach, but with Bob Dog having arthritis now it's not the best place for him. He forgets he has a sore hip and gets so excited, running into the water, doing sort of dolphin leaps! He always ends up coming home limping and suffers for a few days.
We thought we'd give Rolands Wood a go. And oh how I wish we'd gone yonks ago! It is an amazing place, and the dogs adored it. It looks particularly lovely just now, as all the magnolias are flowering. In a few more weeks the bluebells will be out.
This is sort of the area of the wood - it doesn't go back as far as the photo though!!
Shall we go this way?
Or this way? Brodie and Lulah were on a mission to explore every inch of the woods!
Brodie is one very happy boy.
Lulah smelling the daffodils as she runs by.
She's pretty well camouflaged in all the leaves.
Swimming! She is SUCH a waterbaby.
Bob belted around the place having a total ball. Hard to believe he'll be 10 in a couple of weeks.
Poor Lloyd was on Poo Bag duty!
Super delighted dogs.
There's an amazing amount of flowers out just now
Tired but happy, doodles. Except Lulah, who looks very sad to be leaving.
My favourite pic of the day - Bob in the magnolias.
