Hooli again and a walk in the woods

Following on from yesterday's post about Hooli finding the rubber squeeky santa turkey, he was so pleased with himself that he slept with it by his side all night, and picked it up again first thing in the morning. So the house was filled with thumps interspersed with squeeks from the turkey as Hooli charged around with it in his mouth.

When I was getting ready to take him for a walk, everything went silent. Next time I checked, the turkey was gone. It's nowhere to be found. When I ask him where it is, he looks at me as if to say: "Turkey? What turkey?". I think he may have buried it again.

We went for a walk in the woods....

A field full of buttercups.

A rather elegant bug.
A molehill?

The path in the wood was almost overrun by wildflowers.

Like a low cloud.

And leaving the woods, I couldn't see the path out.
Till Hooli came back and showed me the way.

When we first came into the wood, there were three muntjac deer on the path ahead.
Two ran away before I could get my camera out.
If you click on the picture above you should be able to see the remaining deer a bit more clearly.
As we walked up the path we could hear loud barking sounds, which seemed to echo through the woods.
It was a little eerie.
When I got home I looked up the deer online.
They're the smallest deer in the UK and are known as the barking deer.

How neat to near and see those deer! And a beautiful walk to renew the senses.

That dear does seem rather runtish.

Oh my, Dee, you have such a lovely place to walk! Thanks for taking us along with you and Hooli. :)

Those woods do look lovely to walk in but I can imagine that hearing that barking was a little erie!
