Summer has taken such a long time to reach us this year, nature seems to be playing a constant game of catch up. I’ve been waiting patiently for my oriental poppy to flower,finally on Saturday it did. 🙂 Now the sun has arrived the wild flowers are abundant in the countryside around my home. I took a walk with my daughter and our dog Jazz this lunchtime to give us both a break from our computers and here are a few of the flowers we saw on the way. 🙂
The Marsh Orchids which are pictured grow in the country park close to our home. I always escape to the country park and trails when I want inspiration or just need to work through an issue with a plot or character. Walking through meadows of wild flowers always makes me think of the supernatural especially Fae.
Jazz needed to recover when we got home 🙂
We found the enchanted wood below near Curbar in the Peak District Derbyshire last Sunday.
This water filled rock was found high up on Baslow edge. I couldn’t help but wonder what mystical worlds it concealed.
Finally an inquisitive visitor I had whilst writing this post. This friendly bird visits us several times a day. 🙂
What’s your favourite way to spend a summer’s day?
