A wildflower meadow full of oxeye daisies.
Spotted a muntjac deer through the binoculars - can you see him (bottom right)
Father goose guarding his goslings while they pecked around - never straying far.
A captive red squirrel at a nature reserve - adorable.
A great shot of a robin on the wires taken by the husband.
We had some lovely weather, the early mornings were calm and still, the sun shone on the water at high tide, no wind - perfect in its tranquillity. One day a sea fret rolled in - locally they call it a haar it was amazing to see tumbling across the lagoon like steam rising from the water. A natural phenomena as the warm air hits the cold sea.
Friday came round too fast and we had to return home. Not with trepidation like the last time (after the flood), but with anticipation, as we had left the workmen to complete the decorating in our absence. They have done a great job; the furniture is still piled up and we have to be careful which surfaces we touch - and the smell of the paint is eye-wateringly strong - but we are almost there - the end is in sight :)
The garden has burgeoned in our absence. Flowers that were only in bud have now blossomed - jungle is the word that comes to mind - so, since our return I have been very busy trying to tame it into acquiescence, ruthlessly pulling weeds and trying to get some semblance of order - a great big thank you to my friend J for all the watering she had to do during the mini heatwave that occurred while we were gone - not sure what I would do without her help.
'Til next time - enjoy this little spell of fine weather.
