Here we are on the last of the month already.
Now the lane looks very green, lots of new things to see since the Last day of March - HERE or April HERE or May HERE
Sorry about the picture quality, I had to rush out to do this last evening as the sun was disappearing.
Standing at the end of the lane our house and the other houses are on on the left. On the right is a wide drainage ditch which was full of water up until a week or so ago, now it is mostly dry.
Please note tidy hedge thanks to Colin being well enough to wield the hedge-cutter........... if it was left to me I'd let it grow tall so we would be hidden behind it!
We have perennial sweet-peas growing out through the top of the hedge, he cut round them carefully
Look what I spotted (after telling two people that we hadn't got any around here because it's too dry!) This is Meadowsweet growing right on the edge of the ditch, it smells lovely
It doesn't matter that I dug up the clump of Golden Rod from the garden, there's so much here along the lane - plenty for butterflies and bees.
Bramble flowers, - blackberries later I hope - if we get enough rain
A clump of Yellow Loosestrife on the edge of the ditch, an escapee from a garden like the Golden Rod
Get to the road end of the lane and this is the view to the right, postbox almost hidden in the hedge, that's a Walnut tree hanging down over the Footpath sign. It's right in the corner of a garden but over hangs the lane. I shall look out for Walnuts.
Come for a walk down......or up the lane again on the last of July
