The New Forest

Typical sight on the smaller roads through the forest - the wild ponies going where they want. We hunted round, but there were no sweet chestnuts big enough to roast. But it's a nice textury picture.
Quite a bit of the forest considts of quite open areas, with heathland and smaller trees. On this trip we didn't get in among the big old trees. This was the view with our picnic lunch.

And even in October a few flowers splashing colour around . . .

The trip was a visit to an embroidery exhibition ( heavily disguised as a day out in the New Forest) of the embroidery group Diversity, held in Lyndhurst. Their work was based on explorations, photos and sketches in the Forest and certainly conveyed the quality of their source very well indeed.
