An Evening at Mill Lawn Near Burley

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Mill Lawn is a lovely area close to the village of Burley in the New Forest. It has a brook that meanders in twists and curves between grassy banks.

Can you see the man with the oversized hairdo in this tree?

I have no idea what this wildflower is, and my wildflower book was worse than useless at helping me identify it. Any ideas?

Some ponies messing about in the woods were proving a little too interesting to Marley and Harry. Before they could get involved, a sharp sit command from me produced this rather amusing arrangement of dogs!

The meanders of the brook create deep pools on the outer edges of each curve. Brilliant for throwing balls into for a dog that likes to dive!
