Morning walk, 28th May 2012

Another gorgeous morning. The poppies came out incredibly quickly. On Friday the buds were tightly closed, and now look at them. In previous years, the weed-killing regime hasn't been as efficient, and the whole field was a blaze of scarlet. Just the edges of the path are studded with them now. Still lovely thoug.

 Last year's crop was rape, and there are a couple of plants still surviving on the edges of the path.

I tried to photograph the buttercups, but this was a complete and utter failure as I was where the dog wanted to be.

So I gave up.

 Sheep were shorn at the weekend. They're still making use of the fleeces.
