A walk down Burlees Lane, then up through the wood and back home along Raw Lane.

We walked past a pair of magnificent gorse bushes in full flower. From 10 metres away, the air was filled with their distinctive coconut smell.

In the wood, the wild garlic was equally magnificent, but with a very different aroma.
