16/02/2020 I went for a walk yesterday......
Maximum temperature in the Charente today 19C, minimum 9C. Rain measured this morning Nil. 24km/h south-westerly wind with gusts up to 51 km/h.
I went for a walk yesterday while the weather was fair, it gets colder as the week goes on if the forecast is right. I took too many photos, so this will be only the first part of the walk. Our slow connection just cannot cope with as many as 30 photos in one blog!!
Camellia in our neighbour's garden. Ours are still in tight bud!
Cotoneaster also in another neighbour's garden, ours have already dropped their berries!
Looking across the fields.
Long-leaved Lungwort (Pulmonaria longifolia). Thanks to Susan for the ID.
Cowslip (Primula veris).
Rose hips with rose bedeguar galls caused by the wasp (Diplolepis rosae). The female lays up to 60 eggs within each leaf bud. The grubs develop within the gall.
Common Brimstone butterfly (Gonepteryx rhamni) on a cowslip.
