MY WORLD IS A WILD ISLE OF MAN MEADOW

Welcome to the jungle!




Wild isn't it? I mean really wild, overgrown get yourself lost in meadow. Gorgeous isn't it. Not if you have hay fever though I suspect or a phobia to creepy crawlies or bigger things like beetles, spiders, worms and dare I say it RATS. I mean longtails. Superstition shh we can't say the R word, but now and again you can hear one scuttling past. Fortunately(or not you can't actually see them with the wild look above. For those of you who have virtually walked this way before and skywatched you may have guessed this is Nature Reserve, leading towards the River. In the distance is the hint of a Barrule, and the industrial building you can see where the Post Office has it's depot.. What you can't see what I'm talking about, due to the wild, wild, grass. Then I'll just have to show you on a clear day. Click the coloured links below to reveal the hidden wonders.

So when life gets a little too much, take yourself off to the meadow where you can get lost amongst the mini jungle.

I love to explore the area as long as someone came first to cut a path.

Maria said...

What an inviting meadow! Makes you want to lie on your back looking up into the sky... dreaming!
Have a great week!

i so love to hear you talk about the "R" word and the nice name that you give them "long tails"...it makes me smile. i do not think i would venture into the field without sturdy shoes and perhaps a walking stick...lol.
have a wonderful tuesday.

Maria said...

I'm definitely NOT afraid of the mini jungle rats! As long as I'm not bothered by ants, they are really annoying :(

Sylvia K said...

Fun, wonderful look as always at a part of your world, Babooshka! I would love to go roaming around there! In spite of the rats! Have a great week!

Please don't use the R word it really is bad luck for you and your family.

J'aime ces champs sauvages qui sont le paradis des oiseaux, des mulots et des papillons ... Et peut-ĂȘtre des amoureux .

Wren said...

I enjoyed all the photos, different views of this part of your world. I'm just as glad we couldn't see the longtails (aka r*ts) though the a view of the fairy folk would have been a treat!

Ken Mac said...

Reminds me of Wyeth without the calculated artsyness. I could wallow in that grass for hours..

Babooshka said...

Ken Mac - Thank you for the compliment. Andrew Wyeth I admit I had to Google and see to compare. Thanks for the intro. Natural is always best.

Pierre said...

Hi babooshkha - thanks for sharing and for the nice read. I appreciate your comment at my Bo-Kaap pic also!
Best from Cape Town,
Pierre

Babooshka: What a neat post and I loved your blue period best of all.

While you're talking about what's on the ground my eyes are fixed on the sky above. You have a glorious skyscape on this photo.

Reader Wil said...

I prefer your meadow to those in Australia, which bristles with snakes and other dangerous creatures. Thanks for your post! And for your visit!

Barb said...

Hi Babooshka - I had to root around in your other posts to discover what a "barrule" is! Of course, I do see it there in the distance. It will be a good place to run if any of those "r's" start bothering me!

Very pretty!! I think it made for a great photo.

Carver said...

There's nothing like a wild meadow. I love it.

Brian Miller said...

beautiful.

marley said...

Been rolling around in the long grass again B?! Lol!

re your small request - I'm planning to show all the photos together in the last installment (but don't tell anyone!)

SandyCarlson said...

That's my kind of jungle!

Pam said...

A splendid view of the wild native grasses. Just free to be.

Nyblaque said...

Such an earthy serene pic of wild nature- green very green over here looking at this photo from the concrete jungle lol;-) Your work is awesome.

Gaelyn said...

It certainly looks like a land of fairies and I thought I saw just the glimpse of one in the grasses, but it was gone. Won't they hold still for a photo?

Sally in WA said...

It looks so inviting. Rats? I could probably deal with that. It's ticks I despise.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Looks like a wonderful natural spot to escape to and forget about the goings on in the world - especially the noisy TT.

Layrayski said...

nice image. I thought its only a butuanon superstition about not mentioning the r word. you practice it also? amazing. =)

Deslilas said...

That's the wild west for us !

Bibi said...

A lion's eye or a dog's view of this lovely meadow!!

Wolynski said...

Lovely photos - my favorite is the berried sunset.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Very interesting and I love the grass. Here in Oklahoma, USA we have grass like that but, unless you saturate yourself with deet, if you wallow around in it you will have a bunch of chigger bites and ticks attached.

Mo said...

I'm not sure I could manage a picture like this, I would be sneezing so much I'm afraid my camera might fly into the mouth f one of those R things.
It is a fabulous view.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

HI Babooshka !! This Photograph and Place Both Are Amazing !!Lovely

alicesg said...

Interesting photo. Reminds me of the long lallang (a type of long grass) over here which I hated it when I walked across them. They can give nasty cuts.

mannanan said...

You know I should get up to Poyll Dooey more regular seeing as it's only a few yards away from my house. Once again you've got a cracking image of a cracking place. See you around.

Arija said...

Love the natural meadow, street racing is not at all my thing.

Snapshutter said...

Wild as wild gets!

magiceye said...

superbly composed!
as usual!

Maggie said...

I will be happy when the bikes have gone. Really pretty image of the Poyll.

b.c. said...

oh that's lovely, very nice

Mojo said...

Okay, when you have to dial 1-800-PIED-PIPER, don't come cryin' to me Missy. You're the one that keeps tossin' around the "R" word.

WILBO43 said...

Great blog. You are a talented photographer. A visit to the Isle of Man TT is on my Bucket List. Next time we visit the UK for sure.
