When the green woods laugh

A sunny Saturday morning family photography session in the woods in Stanmore today.

As much as I love the full Old Redding loop (finishing off in the garden of the Case is Altered), it’s usually too large an expedition for the smaller legs, so we took the quiet residential entrance to the nature reserve, discovered fairy dells and disappeared into the soft light of the woods.

We took some time to climb, clamber and practice balancing along some fallen tree trunks and logs and holding tight to Mummy’s hand as we wobbled.  When we were all ready to head home, we took a stroll back picking posies of wild flowers, some cow parsley and Herb Robert to give to Daddy.
