Summers Poppies….

Summer is back….yesterday was merely a plip in the weather.

Lush is the phrase used to describe to meadows flower, they also prove that white is as bright as any colour in the floral spectrum..

even the pond is lush with growth whilst sporting a ‘gem’ of a Lilly…

So far its not been a bad year for the flowers both in the wild or our garden.  Last year we seem to stagger through in uncertainty….this year everything seems to have happened with a flourish.  We just hope they aren’t all going to fizzle out.

Well Sunday heralded a Change in the Weather….

_DOI7452_01qqq

 

Beech Wood, Derbyshire

Sunday brought the change in weather that had been forecast for earlier in the week. No rain of any consequence and certainly not enough to dampen the woodland floor.  But it was dull with just an occasional flash of brightness that pretended to be the sun.

So the woods were darker under the leaf canopy but the biggest change seemed to be the temperature…. by comparison with the warm spring and summer the days  the contrast seem much greater that the reality as it still registered 17c.

All in all it was a mini shock to the system and reminded us on just how well the weather gods have looked after us….even though it cannot last for ever!
