Wen they sed we wer goin to the New Forest, I thort it wud be wun big wood, a reelly big thik dark wood. I thort that waz wat a forest was. Do yu? Well no, it issent! It's woods in sum playses, but also fields calld heathland. This meens fields that ar scruffy.

There wer also fields calld mire, wich means bogland. HAHAHAA. Peepol in the USA mite not kno but BOG is a slang nayme for a toylet! HAHAHA! BOGland! Well I thort it waz funny, anyway!

This is a bit ov BOGland. The lumps ar all mossy an bownsy. Daddy is bownsin across them. Akchewly, this is the ferst time I hav put a foto ov Daddy on the blog. As he is a teecher, he is a bit shy ov havin his pikcher on a blog, in cayse eny ov the herd ov 7 an 8 year olds he teeches see him. Hehee. Ah, don't worry Daddy, yor ownly small in this wun!

We took this pic dewrin a long walk. Heer ar sum mor pic's, from the woody part ov the walk:

Spot the Daddy:

This wun waz the biggest in the forest. It's a big Sekkoya tree, from North Amerryka. I tuk this pikcher from underneeth it. The bark issent hard like uther trees, it's soft an squidgy an warm!:Mummy liket it too:I deesydid to giv it a littol help to keep it the tallest:Heer's sum mor big wuns. Spot the Daddy agen:

Heer he is!!I fownd a nice big cone for a sooveneer. Mummy sed it waz ok to keep this wun coz all the seeds had gon. It's enormuss. I bet sum ov my doggy frends wud like to giv it a chew.We did a few big walks. On the longest we stopt fer a rest at a log an drank tea from a flarsk. That's our map in frunt ov us. Notiss Sam haz got my coat on!!!

Sum peepol preferd not to walk! I don't kno the laydy's nayme but the horsey waz calld Mulberry. I like his fluffy feet.

A few mor intrestin things...

This is a World War II bomb crater. I bet the frogs rownd heer like it.

Sum ov the trees had enormuss roots! Heer is Daddy agen. If yu dident kno the roots wer hewge, he'd be like a wee leprecorn.A New Forest robin!This berd is calld a Tree-Creeper cos he creeps rownd trees like a mowse.Just wun mor ov sum trees!
I luv walks in the woods, I do! I jus wish it had been warm enuff for us Bears to hav a piknik! As it waz, the sum waz shyny but it waz still chilly. Wen we got bak to the Bed An Brekfast playse, we all sat rownd the fire to warm our toze....

Next time I'll tell yu bowt sum speshol playses I vizitid. (Meenwile, Dilly has bloggd abowt the Reptile playse we vizited, if yu want to hav a look!)

Bye fer now!

Wow! that pine cone is nearly as big as you. I love all those pictures of the woods and the sequoai tree is really interesting. I didn't realise there were any bomb craters in the new forest!

Hiya Bob

WE think your photos of your hols are great. We are on holiday at the moment but we have managed to read all about your visit to the New Forest. It looks very interesting and we will ask our Hoomans to take us there one day.

I love the woods too! Your photos of gorgeous, and I'm glad you included some of your daddy. You know, he DOES look like a wee leprechaun.

Thank you for nourishing the big sequoia tree. You're such a naturalist.

Wish we had a fireplace like the one you had at the bed & breakfast place. Looks just right for warming your toes, and your bum, and your ears...

Goober love & smooches,

Calamity Jane said...

Bob, I like yourself, am a connoisuer of trees although I don't help them along quite the same way you do. Have you ever been to Lynford Arboretum? It's not far from where I live, a little bit further up in East Anglia than where you are.

By the way I found some tall sunflowers seeds after all, not that the seeds are tall you understand. I think today's the day isn't it?

Phytheas said...

You're becoming quite the ornytoll..., ornigolo..., birdwatcher! Treecreepers are awful difficult to see (so the JCBinC says). I love that picture of you all by the fire. I hope you didn't get singed.


Shrinky said...

such wonderful photography, it's hard not to feel awed by the size and age of some of those grand old trees. How gorgeous, all of you lined up toasting yourselves round the fire- sure looks cozy. Smile.
