Looking for shade and a little cool air…

 It might be a heatwave with temperatures today of 33c but Buster and I still need our daily walkies…. so it early morning then later evening to try to avoid the extremes. Starting by the River side was a good idea then over to some woodland for shade.  Butterflies, Bees and insects seem to be loving the current dry spell as are the wild flowers.  Not all is well though, Silver Birch my favourite tree seems to be suffering in the drought, leaves are shrivelled, dry and dropping…not sure the brief spell of rain forecast for the weekend will do very much to help. Still lets make the most of what we have to enjoy…

As for a brief rest…well your choice, a seat in the sun or shade 🙂
