What a scorcher, I don`t think my arms and legs have had so much sun since 2009 when myself and four legged companion (which I miss to bits) completed our 1000 mile walk for Macmillan.
My body has shifted a bit, so the sun no longer frequents the wobbly bits but it has a positive attribute to everything else!!
The picture above shows a rape which is used for oil.
No, it is not Lavender and yes there are different types of rape, the yellow rape can just be seen in the distance and this colouring only comes out first thing in the morning when the air is cool, so if your thinking of trying to see it later in the afternoon, I`m afraid the flowers will not be out, they hate the heat!
Poppies have also come out in abundance..
From the poppies to other flowers and insects frequenting our countryside, don`t half give you a good glow, enjoy the summer, whatever you're doing!!
There are many wonders in the garden, we just have to look after them.
Our hedgerow seemed to be awash with strange caterpillars, but I believe it will turn into a red admiral, though not sure and then there is equal sharing, the ladybird and the snail toying with a spiders web, now there`s a book....
Finally, the Red Admiral, up close and personal, and the Peacock butterflies, Summer is here - at last and hopefully stays a little longer than the last two winters we`ve all endured.
