Today is the first day of spring and I had visions of taking snaps of the lovely spring flowers out in my garden....but it's chucking it down with rain........ instead I'll take you on our outing to Wittenham Clumps.
The Clumps are two hills topped with Beech trees in an ancient landscape rising above the village of Little Wittenham in Oxfordshire, not too far from us - The Round Hill and Castle Hill, which is an iron age fort. Both I believe have been excavated by archaeologists. Anyway - the walk itself is just lovely and we plan to go back during the summer when the surroundings, which along with the clumps are maintained by Earth Trust, should be a wild flower paradise.
