The sun was out this morning adding great light to the scenery around Benburb valley park. With the leaves almost gone the bulbs and seeds receive the necessary light and heat to grow. It won’t be long until some of the first wildflowers appear.The signage provides a little insight into some of the local delights. With the autumn foliage lying it’s hard to make out the tracks through the forest trails.Like the retreating army after the battle of Benburb, the Japanese knotweed is disappearing for another year. It provides some wonderful colour but unfortunately will come back stronger than ever come May.A short stroll from here takes you to one of the most picturesque places in the area at the famous white bridge.The water flows gently today as levels return to normal after a period of heavy rain.The trails like the river meander gently along and there is plenty of activity as the squirrels gather the rest of their winter supplies.It’s hard to beat walking along the woodland carpet and admiring the colour.That’s at least 5K walked and time to go back to the couch, although it may be time for a coffee at the stables.
