Day Eight: Dowdeswell to Winchcombe

This Is a Genius Loci - a Household 'God of Place'. We All Need One. 

The Word Comes From Above and I Obey. WORD! 

This Is Why You Should Get Up Early

How bravely Autumn paints upon the sky
The gorgeous fame of Summer which is fled!
Hues of all flowers that in their ashes lie,
Trophied in that fair light whereon they fed.
Tulip and hyacinth and sweet rose red.

A Man From Out of Time

These Shire Crosses Were Gorgeous ~ Nap Time! 

Overlooking Cheltenham from Cleeve Hill, the Highest Point in the Cotswolds. I'm Just Going to Have to Come Back When the Sun is Out. I MIssed So Much!

Wow, I Forgot The Steep Climb! 

Belas Knap: Neolithic burial mound or BARROW. In the 1863-1865 excavations, the skeletal remains of five children, aged between 6 months and 8 years, the skull of a young adult male, horse and pig bones and fragments of pottery and a serrated flint blade were found . In 1963 excavations found the remains of 38 human skeletons, together with animal bones, flint implements and pottery circa 2000 BC.

A Place of Mystery and Energy

I Moss

Yes, it is I! 

 It was raining and so blustery even the golfers on Cleeve Hill gave up and went in, nonetheless, this was an excellent country walk over Ham and Prestbury Hills . The vistas are opening now, the hedges are ripening and the smell of wood smoke is in the air.
