Early Morning Walk


Rick is keen to go


Another early morning walk, down the hill, through the farmer’s wheat field and into the shade of the chestnut woods.



There are clusters of beehives everywhere amongst the chestnut trees at the moment, and the bees are buzzing away collecting nectar from the flowers.  We are careful to keep Rick well away from the hives.

The heat feels oppressive this afternoon, we are all indoors now waiting for the relative cool of the evening before we venture outside again.

  2. Lovely to see the photos of Paul and Rick. That's a beautiful part of the world you live in.
    Inca and I are out well before 6:30 these mornings, and it's already oppressively hot. Dreading July and August. We could do with rain, so I thought I might clean the windows...

    1. Still nice and green but everything will start to go brown soon if we don't get any rain. I don't think I've got any energy left to clean windows!

    1. No. Actually he barks at the sparrows in his garden and pulls on the leash.
