At this time of year wildflowers are really coming into their own.
I couldn't resist sharing a few photos with you.
Why not try and see if you can recognise any of these flowers on your next walk, they are all species that are in flower now.
Do let me know if you spot any!
This was my second evening walk over the weekend; on Friday night I was a couple of hours later and dusk had fallen by the time I returned home. It was one of those heavy still days, and as I headed out the air was laced with a fine, almost sticky rain which appeared honey coloured in the low sun. Each droplet seemed suspended in an invisible web of scent; the last of the bluebells, the lime green and yellow masses of cross-wort smelling of honey, a dash of coconut from the broom.
A roe buck browsed one of the hedgerows that runs perpendicular to the track. A fox slipped silently over the ridge of the hill. Bats flickered along the darkening tree-tunnel, eager to enter the night.
