Wonderful Shropshire Countryside

Standard

Anthony J Sargeant took this photograph during an early morning bike ride along the Shropshire lanes close to his Home. In the distance is the Brown Clee Hill with mist still clinging to the fields below the top. The sun just clearing the horizon at 5.42am sends shafts of gold onto the field beyond the gate (27th August 2017, Shropshire, England)

Anthony J Sargeant thought the reader might like the alliteration – they look like snowdrops but flower slightly later in early spring in England (today is 2nd April 2017). It has been a beautiful Spring day. (Spring Snowflakes – Leucojum vernum)

Spring is Sprung in Shropshire – Anthony Sargeant, Tony, took this photograph in the late afternoon of 30th March 2017. It shows the bank and hedgerow which forms the boundary of his Shropshire Home. The lane that runs past the house has many escapees from domestic gardens including daffodils but also a profusion of wild native hedgerow flowers. In the field opposite the ewes and their lambs can be seen.

It has been a mild winter with very little snow this year and not so many serious frosts as normal. Anthony Sargeant took this photograph from the bedroom window of his Shropshire, UK, home at about 8.30 am on Saturday 11th February 2017. The few flurries soon ceased and the snow melted away.

Photographed at 8.30 am on 20 January 2017 by Anthony Sargeant looking South-West from the garden of his Shropshire home. A frosty January morning with the trees and hedgerows bare of leaves gives a translucency to the countryside. Here a mature Oak stands out in the field just across the lane from the garden.

Here on a fine summer day a narrow Shropshire lane leads gently downhill past the home of Anthony Sargeant on the immediate right. The River Corve runs along the bottom of the valley making its way westwards under the southern flank of Wenlock Edge on which the distant white dots of sheep can be seen grazing

Ancient Yew Tree on Wenlock Edge

Standard

This ancient Yew tree was photographed by Anthony Sargeant just off the foot path that runs along the top of Wenlock Edge in Shropshire, England. It has a diameter in excess of two metres and must have grown undisturbed in its remote location for hundreds if not thousands of years.
