Lazy Days

It is not yet halfway through July but, maybe due to the recent dryness, in some ways it is starting to feel like those late summer days when all is done.

The swallow in the woodshed, along with all other birds busy with their second brood, would not agree as they try to squeeze maximum life from the season.

After kaleidoscopic changes the meadow is starting to look dry

and the Ringlets are joined by a burst of Veined Whites

We feel a bit as if golden sunflakes are covering the ground,
as if we are basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon

as we watch the bees leave the hive

One thought on “Lazy Days

  1. Well you’ll probably know what the daisy family plant is by now..have been a bit slow getting to the computer this week. I would think it’s probably Scentless Mayweed but I’m not 100% sure. There don’t seem to be enough petals & I cant see the back of the flower!! It’s very pretty, anyway.Incidentally, we had the same stange cloud formation on Sunday – thought that was a bit weird but it certainly brought us loads of rain!!J
