There have been few really sunny days this summer but every season has it's winners and losers. This year had the summer of fruits : rhubarb, blackcurrants, strawberries, red currents and there are loads of little apples and pears on the trees.
The heavy rain early in the spring seems to have suited them and also many of the wild flowers in the hedgerows and by the lakes.
Random photos below of the sights this year (along with Connie) the red Border Collie. She's not very smart but she is our "Love Dog" - nothing pleases her more then to lie with us and get petted and snuggle. A needy girl but full of charm.
Some Cultivated flowers by the house.
