Communal Global ~ "Around the World"


This month on CG we are documenting the things we are thankful for.

Today I am thankful for where I live, but as I'm not really going anywhere much these days (just simply too painfully uncomfortable at 38/40), I'm sharing a few images from this time LAST year.




This is my home, zoomed in from about half a mile away as the crow flies, but you can't walk straight that way, as the ground between where I stood and my home is not safe to walk on ~ it's a floating peat bog (Wybunbury Moss)! I took this last autumn ~ I just LOVE the colours.



This is alongside our lane.


This is the entrance way to the 'inner moss' ~ the peat bog itself. There is a safe-path around part of it.


Part of the walk around 'the moss' that we take on a regular basis (when I can).


A view of the 'inner moss' ~ the peat bog.


As you can see, nothing much appears to grow here (except bull-rushes), as the actual surface is not very deep, but it is a hive of rare wildlife and some 'exclusive' species of insects and plants. The trees that surround the bog blow down on a regular basis, as the soil is simply to shallow to support their weight. Underneath the bog is a deep lake!



Our Village pub ~ delicious grub served here!!


Another little bit of the walk.


And the 'feel' of the place :D

I hope you've enjoyed a glimpse into my world ~ now show us a glimpse of what you are thankful for in yours :)

Beauty surrounds you!

You live surrounded by beauty, lucky you?! We have a house on either side of us, so not much natural beauty to see around my neck of the woods!

Very nice photos. I think many of us are surrounded by beauty but we fail to see it. God grant us eyes to see the beauty around us. In a bog, or a swamp, or down a dusty lane. Blessings!

This looks like such a special place! What a beautiful setting for your home. The town looks so charming too. Thanks for sharing!
