Muck And Magic

M IS FOR?



MOLEHILLS AND MOSS !

On a recent walk we met with these mounds of molehills which you can see above. The little mount in the background has the delightful name of 'Catbells'. On the same walk we also came across this most memorable dingly dell with its mossy covered floor ~





Do click on the last photo. I have it as my screensaver at the moment and want to reach into the screen to stroke green velvet. What does your screensaver display just now? More on the letter M over at ABC Wednesday.

  1. It's so much fun to wander around away from cities or villages or towns. You can find so many interesting things. :D

  2. At first I got a bit scared when looking at that photo: what size moles do they have in your neck of the woods?? Then I saw the proper molehills.

    Great M!

  3. What a great post for the M day, Anna! I love your photos and your new screen saver is terrific. My screen saver is all of my photos, one at time, moving from one to the next. Have a wonderful week!

  4. Hi Anna an interesting topic molehills and moss. I have to confess I have never got round to adding a screen saver just another thing to get my head around but would be spoilt for choice of what photo to use.

  5. That's a lot of moles living there. Nice post for M, and yes the moss looks so velvety.

  6. So CAN one make a mountain out of a molehill? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Nice post.

  7. Anna, Those mole holes remind me of my vole hills - those critters get real active in the Spring. That moss photo is beautiful - there's no green like moss green. I have the Elliot on my desktop!

  10. Good stuff that molehill soil.

    Weed free, aerated top soil. I'd shovl some into a wheel barrel.

  11. There seems to be many more molehills about than usual just now. I heard somewhere that it is because of the cold winter we've had, apparently the moles are on the move more looking for food. I love to see mossy ground, though it's very slippy.

  12. Dear Anna, All of these images convey so very clearly theloveliness of the English countryside at this time of year. Even the mole hills have a charm [outside of the garden, that is] and the moss, as you say, is beautifully tactile.

  15. Hi Anna~~ It's a LOVE/HATE for me: Hate the mole hills; LOVE the moss!

  16. I love that mossy dingly dell Anna ... looks so tactile. I agree with Jo there does seem to be a lot of molehills this spring - I was beginning to think it was just me having a bit of a twilight zone moment - if you know what I mean!!

    My screensaver is a picture of the rocks at Tintagel - a reminder of our Cornish holiday last year.

  17. I always thought of moles as solitary animals, but these seem to have crested a village. I love how the molehill shape is echoed in the shape of the hill.

  18. Oh yes, it's very strokable, isn't it? Beautiful, feathery moss! And those molehills are incredible! They have been busy.

    My wallpaper right now is Inspector Fred Abberline - Johnny Depp's role in From Hell. Funny ... I just want to reach out and stroke him, too. LOL!
