Hampstead Heath December

Chloe & I often head up to Hampstead Heath on a Sunday afternoon with our respective dogs to get some exercise, catch up and allow the dogs to run about in the mud like crazy things. It’s a beautiful time of year, as the leaves are almost all off the trees now, and there is a quality to the light in the latter part of the afternoon as the sun starts to go down that feels particularly English.

I call this copse the cathedral, because of its tall reaching trees, and empty spaces between the trunks.

beautiful imagery… your top two images in particular are very haunting & heathcliff-esque! & my new word for the day is copse (had forgotten it even existed!)…

I do love a good tweed coat. Have dragged mine out a lot over the past few weeks.

Balmoral wellies are the best, love the aubergine colour! Perfect footwear for muddy dog walks and keeping feet stylishly warm! Love your blog.
