First of all thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. It is good to have slightly more time on my hands and taking up blogging again.
I hope you will forgive me this week in sharing some pictures from the past rather than the present! We have finally had some rain and we even had a flood alert warning with high tide yesterday, so with the background of blue skies last weekend pictures are much more appealing!
Along the country lanes it has been common to squeeze past tractors as they head to the fields to gather in their harvest. We noticed that the crop is this field seemed very short in comparison with normal.
We had a visitor looking in through the window. I think this is a cricket rather than a grasshopper, am I right?
The creeping thistle is slowly spreading in the field next door. I love the description of it's shaving brush head, but having just read that each flower has between 20- 200 seeds and each stem has around 680 seeds I hope they aren't heading in the direction of our garden!
Last Sunday was "West Bay Day" an annual celebration to raise money for local charities, I just had to photograph this amazing cake that had been donated by one of the local pubs. It looked almost too good to eat and like you I can only imagine what it tasted like!
We even had time last week to sit and watch the clouds (for a short time), my husband thought this one looked like a Westie! Tavi on the other hand was more interested in watching the lake to see if any ducks would appear!
The beach has been relatively busy even later in the day, the setting sun gives the scene an enhanced golden glow.
And as the sun set on another day, the changing light is always a treat to watch and admire!
Wishing you a good week ahead.
