11/08/2017 A walk to the next hamlet and what I saw along the way.
Maximum temperature 22C, minimum 12C. 9 km/h NW wind with 28 km/h gusts. 15 mm rain measured.
The first thing I see as I leave the house and walk around the corner is our neighbour's barn.
I just love these chicory flowers that are everywhere at the moment.
Bladder campion or maidenstears (Silene vulgaris).
Daisy with a fly.
Gatekeeper butterfly, female.
Gatekeeper butterfly, male.
A rose bud peeking through a fence.
It this a fungus growing on a rose plant?
Cuckoo Pint seeds. A member of the Arum family and poisonous.
and another thistle with a bumble bee.
Large Yellow Rest Harrow
For those that might be interested, I have started my blog on our South African holiday earlier this year.
