05/07/2017 Join me on another walk in the country.

Maximum temperature 32C, minimum 16C. 12 km/h NE winds with 20 km/h gusts. Dry.
Saw 4 cyclists just as I was leaving home, four bonjours :-)  Luckily it is a quiet road as they have pretty much taken over!!

Clover.

Common blue male (Polyommatus icarus).

Daisy family plus two flies and a hoverfly.

Hay bales.

Honey suckle.

Marbled white - (Melanargia galathea).

Meadow brown - (Maniola jurtina).

Wonder if a fairy lives here LOL.

One of the roads I walked down.

Spider web with dew drops.

Thistle family and a bug.

Unknown...

also unknown with a bee...

Almost black cherries, they looked fabulous.  Ours have been over for at least 4 to 5 weeks!!

  5. Great place for a fair to live! I have actually thought about making a fair garden in my garden but I figure I have way to much going on that I need to do and I don't need to start something else! Beautiful pics. Wishing I could still ride a bike without killing myself!

    1. I walk now rather than cycle. A bad fall in Spain a couple of years back put me off two wheels!! Diane

  6. Beautiful butterflies and flowers series. I like the spider web with dew drops and the black cherries. The cherries look ripe and sweet.

    1. Bet those cherries were good, they were very late - there was a big ditch though between me and the cherries!! Diane

    1. Seldom can I get decent photos of spider webs, this one was an unusual shape though as well. Thanks for the very kind comment Diane
