Summer’s Curtain Call

Hanging on to the Summer…

Even though the Buddleia is way past its best, this Peacock Butterfly doesn’t mind. In order to get this close to take a photo I had to improvise by sellotaping a magnifying glass to the front of the lens! Most were blurred, but this one came out alright…

The farming community has had a tough ‘summer’, it’s good to see a field with a least a bit of sun on it – even if only for a brief while. This was taken yesterday evening and just this morning the weather had changed rather dramatically for the worse once more.

If only we could find some way to export a few clouds to places that could do with them, like those vineyards in Australia that haven’t had rain for four years. To make matters worse, we got a water bill yesterday and a leaflet urging us of the need to conserve water, as supplies were limited!
