Return to burial mound

I am drawn to this ancient long barrow on the Cotswolds. Earlier in the year I stopped on my journey because it was covered in beautiful cowslips.

Yesterday a revisit was needed , this time it was covered in cow parsley wild strawberries, vetches, speedwells ( birdseyes we used to call them) herb Robert and stitchworts to name a few. while walking to it the mound there were beautiful wild geraniums in the verges (hedgerow cranesbill).

The skylarks were singing but unfortunately they were competing with shotguns which sounded very close . On the way home we noticed that opposite in the valley there is a shooting events area. Hopefully next visit there won’t be an event on .
