After I got dressed this morning, I went back into the bedroom to say to Malcolm that was me off for my walk, and that I was taking the camera as there was a lovely sky and I hope to get some good photos of the hills.
I went out the front door and took this photo of swallows sitting on the phone wire (that had me singing Leonard Cohen!)
then as I went through the gate, I heard a noise as if something was hitting my car ..... that was soon explained when a large raindrop landed on my head! So about three minutes after saying there was a lovely sky, it had been obscured by rainclouds. This photo makes it look much more dramatic than it really was, as the camera has focused on the lighter sky
I would love to have a wildlife expert go for a walk with me .... they could tell me what dug this burrow (I wonder if Robert Downey Jnr or Johnny Depp know anything about nature - I wouldn't mind one of them .... or even better both of them ..... going on a walk with me)
I had to get off the road rather quickly when this lorry passed me - I'm just glad I wasn't on one of the stretches of road where there is only a narrow verge (the lorry has a trailer on it - the man is standing in the middle!)
The rosehips are starting to ripen ......
..... and the apples are getting bigger - I'm saving up jars for some autumn jam and jelly making (and I might even try making rosehip syrup)
So did I get a good photo of the hills ...... well, I like this one
It's Friday again, and I'm relaxing with a glass of wine while I type this! I hope you all have a good weekend - no doubt I'll be out in the studio sewing!
