Early Start…..

It was already warm,  the forecast is for another scorcher.  So it was an early start for a “cool” walk in the woods.  Rather good to be out before many other folk arrive to disturb the solitude and quiet….quiet that is apart from the birds who were all in full song.

The other noticeable change from last week is that the sun is already much lower in the sky and also on  this clear morning, showing a hint of  a yellow glow.  Yep, like it or not we are heading towards autumn.  Right now the woodlands are rather green and lush and still have that early summer scent.  Great to be out .

Long dark shadows.  Glades that glow bright and just the barest hint if a breeze

The perfect start to any day.

25c at the moment and set to rise,  so best head home and find the shade

A Sizzling Saturday……

A Cool Garden in Seville.

Here in the UK the Met. Office tells us we have another mini heatwave on the way.  In the last mini blast, here in middle England we reached 35c…..  and that is hot for our part of the world.

It did remind me that when we were last in Seville, Spain’s capital of Andalusia, we enjoyed a high of 39.5c .  This private garden, hiding along one of the many narrow streets of high buildings, looked rather cool and inviting.

It would have been a joy to have lingered in the cool
