Meadow Flowers and….
and Woodland Shade
The mid-summer sun has brought out the meadow flowers, lots of nectar for the Bees and insects….. but that same sunshine has sent me to the woods to enjoy a shady walk, shade much appreciated by Buster.
It is the time of year when the Bracken is perhaps at its best, as yet not to high but its bright green fronds spreading like a carpet…and yep there are some rabbits taking shelter under there. They are safe , Buster is far too hot to give chase.
Water adds another cooling element to the days walk. Today along the overgrown towpath of the Cromford Canal…
Then its back to the open meadows and that summer smell of rich hay in the making…
