Blackberry blossom at Ham Common Wood

I went for a walk this morning through Ham Common Wood, into Richmond Park via Ham Gate, then up towards Petersham Gate, then up the hill to Pembroke Lodge, through the gardens, then back home through Ham Gate and Ham Common Wood again (a distance of 6 km). Here are some of the wild things I spotted.

A hill that is steeper than it looks (I go pass this hill regularly on the bus and have been meaning to walk up it again for ages)

And glad to be heading home, I don’t like the look of that sky!
