Until July 2017, documenting the seasons of coastal Dorset. I'm a complete amateur so don't trust I'm always right. If ever you see I'm wrong - whether with identifications or in anything else - do say! Meanwhile . . . I've now moved to Halifax in West Yorkshire. Click on the link below to collect the new URL.

Looking across Portland Harbour to the Purbeck Hills.
This is the view from my Stuck Foot Post for August

What is a 'Stuck Foot Post?
A stuck foot post is where you plant your foot firmly in a roughly random place and see what you can see without moving. Best is when you plant both feet. If you are on a slope or some other kind of difficult ground you may need to move the other foot for the sake of balance - but you mustn't move the 'stuck' foot' You can bend your body this way and that. You can lean forward and twist at the waist - but you mustn't swivel that stuck-foot.

To find out more, there's a page about Stuck Foot Posts.
If you'd like to join in, do. It's very informal.

I'll be putting a link box for Stuck Foot Posts on Loose and Leafy on the following dates.
21st August
21st November
21st March
Each box will open at 7am (UK time) on the 21st of the month
and close at 7pm on the first of the next month.
(So this box will close at 7pm on 1st Sepetember.)

Remember to put a link to your Stuck Foot Post not to the blog as a whole.
The box will close at 7pm UK time on 1st September so there's plenty of time.

Hey Lucy, by coincidence I had written something similar yesterday and was nudged by Amanda to link it with yours. I love these kinds of posts- you find out so much about what's there simply by being still and observing. Great idea to do the link box- thank you :-)

Hello Countryide Tales. That's quite some amazing post you have there! I'm so glad you put it in the link box.

I never thought about it, but I'm sure I have some of those around here somewhere. I'm going to look!
