A dell in Quarry Woods

A Quarry Woods Dell.

Sidney loved nature, and working in his garden gave him great pleasure. He was by all accounts on very good terms with the birds that visited the garden at Durlston. For instance when digging, and he came across a worm, he would stand back and let the local resident robin fly down and pick it up. He and the robin were on such good terms, that it would hop in through the kitchen door to look for crumbs.
He seldom ever left the village and found his greatest pleasure in his walks, for instance one of his favourite places to walk was Quarry Woods, as you can see in his painting above of a dell among the beeches.
