This wonderful summer weather is just my cup of tea, it is so pleasant walking the dogs, Being elderly [me too] we can take our time and look at things around us, smell them in the case of the pooches, The riar roses have been quite spectacular this year, but they are all but gone, at almost the same time the Queen Anne LAce adorned the bottom of the hedgerows. The fields [whcih are now large football pitches] were patchworked edge to edge with Hawkbit, daisies, and clover, unfortunately cut down , but they are rising again, with the bees coming back for second helpings.
The blackberry bushes are starting to flower, and the hazelnuts are swelling.
It’s lovely picking cherries from the many cherry trees planted round the edges; all these things are doing well this year
Not too many butterflies as the horrible man who mows the lawns takes the cutter right to the edge and cuts away lots of their habitat, Not many swallows or martens either, though I did see some swifts the other evening. Last night what few swallows were ducking and diving quite low, a sign of thundery weather, Thunderbirds, they used to e called, and weren’t they spot on ! as we had one of the biggest storms for years.
Well that’s it for now folks. Comments gratefully accepted. LOL
