Blue sky, fluffy clouds, wide swathes of grasses etc.
Thistley things which have shed their seeds - I think that's what they are anyway (oh so knowledgeable and technical)
My friend said these are weeds - I wouldn't mind weeds like these in my garden
The thistles are a lovely colour and what a lot of seeds they produce
Those pollen paniers are huge - how does a little bee carry all that lot?
Patterns in the sky
There were masses of these seeds - each puff of wind lifted more of them and wafted them along
The white threads on the individual seeds glinted in the sunshine
I alternated between enjoying the expanse
and the details
I remember visiting the Country Park not all that long after it was opened - there wasn't much there then except for the pond. I don't think I've seen it since - other than a quick glimpse from a train window.
I like these tall waving purple seeded grasses
and the teasels
My friend pointed out a heron on the other side of the pond
and a little later she noticed another one further along
A duck flew towards us and landed in the water - I wasn't quick enough with the camera and missed it. Then three ducks swam towards us - I was ready for them!
These seed heads intrigued me.
and more seeds
Back to the thistley things
and the white fluff
A view in a different direction
When I got home I noticed a delightful young cat playing in our garden. This one has visited several times before and has delicate white lines down the back of his/her ears and the most magnificent eye liner
Thank you very much for popping in to see my blog.
