Combe Hill Wood – a lovely walk

One of our favourite places to take a walk, is Combe Hill Wood, in Somerset.  Although it’s a popular place, we tend to go there during the week when it’s a bit quieter.

Our dogs, Captain Jack, Zillah (both Lurchers) and Ruby (a Jack Russell) love it there too.  Unfortunately, Cosmo and Trubshaw (our Springer Spaniels) can’t cope with this walk anymore as both are elderly, suffer from arthritis, and Trubshaw also has a heart condition.  So a short gentle plod down the lane is enough exercise for them nowadays.

There are great views across the Somerset Levels.  A lot of this land, local roads, and numerous homes flooded early last year, causing major chaos, disruption and heartache.  As you can see, nature found a way to come back from the troubles.

I always like to get a few close up shots too.  I’m afraid I’m useless at identifying flora, so if anyone can educate me about these beauties, I’d be most grateful. 🙂
