A Glorious Day!

It has been a wonderful sunny day here in Darkest Northumberland, reading in the garden, The Children's Mother alternately walking the garden recording her plants with the camera and dashing indoors, complaining about the heat!  The eldest girl has exams in the morning and spent the day sitting outside under the umbrella doing revision and practice papers.

I waited until the evening animal run before getting the camera out and took all my pictures up at the cottage.

I really liked the sun shining through this young foxglove leaf.

Silver Birch Bark

In the orchard we have a Flagpole Cherry which The Children's Mother rescued from somewhere or other.  After two years and several attacks by the donkeys and deer it is in full blossom and looking wonderful.


  1. Wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I played too. Mine are here and here.

  2. I love the first shot! Happy WW.

  3. Beautiful pictures. Glad to see the Flagpole Cherry in full blossom.

    Have a great day.
