Frome Water Meadows

A few pictures from a gentle evening stroll among the Frome River Valley water meadows, on the northern edge of Dorchester, and just a few miles from Charlton Down. The fields are looking particularly glorious right now with thousands and thousands of bright yellow buttercups. Despite the overcast skies, it was a very enjoyable walk in very pleasant company with the added delight of observing clouds of newly-emergent dancing mayflies.

Flowing Water 1

Short video clip of the clear water of the River Cerne flowing over Water Crowfoot on the western edge of village in Charlton Down.

Water Crowfoot resembles long green tresses that wave gently in the clear flowing water of the River Cerne at the edge of the Village. I like the sound of the water undulating and burbling over the weed as it passes downstream.
