27/04/2016 Out for a walk around the local farming area.

Maximum temperature 13C, minimum 0C.  29 km/h NE wind. Dry.
All photos taken with the little Samsung L201
This must be a very special tree to be allowed to stay standing in a large ploughed field.



Barn Swallows (I think)

The local château.

Dam with a couple of horses on the far side.

Walking through the woods.

Possibly a frog hopper - not totally convinced! 

Think this is a pearl-bordered fritillary, but if anyone can confirm I will be grateful.  Wish I had been carrying the Nikon!

A herd of calves.

Man at work.

Lupins, such a pretty crop.


  1. So beautiful.. so picturesque ... I would love to stay in the chateau..

    1. Thanks for your visit and comment Krishna. We stayed in a château last year when we travelled a little further North for a few days, quite an experience :-) Have a good day Diane

  2. I agree - lupins are a really pretty crop.

    1. Lupins and rape certainly beat maize and wheat :-) Keep well Diane

  3. I think they are going to be Barn Swallows - if not, look out for lots of birdwatchers to turn up!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

    1. Thanks Stewart, I am always wary when I cannot see the bird properly and then I get told off for a wrong identification!! I am not so sure sometimes even when I can see them! Cheers Diane

  4. I love to see the vast ploughed fields and the field filled with wheat and lupins. Great pictures.

    1. Thanks Nancy, we have beautiful countryside here as well as lovely villages with much history. Diane
