Summer seems so far away now even though the skies remain blue and the temperatures quite decent.
Autumn’s on it’s way yet this shot was taken in the boot of the hire car in Spain only a few weeks ago. Packed and ready for another lazy day on a glorious beach we’d discovered in Cabo de Palos. How had I missed this beach before on previous visits? Happy memories now as holidays end. Oh well…
Tattenhall in Cheshire is the epitome of an English village and on a rare warm and sunny August day it was looking at its best.
The village was still displaying the Union Jack wherever you looked – no doubt the remnants of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the London 2012 Olympics.
It was a perfect setting for summer flowers of all sorts. You could almost imagine the entire village as an exhibit in the Chelsea Flower Show.
Cultivated gardens and borders like this one, while centuries old Tudor buildings provided a wonderful backdrop for wildflowers.
A perfect English village complete with pubs and its own Indian restaurant. Well worth visiting.
This is the view across the marshes at Parkgate on the Wirral. In the middle of July. Yes, that’s right, July. In case you can’t tell from the picture, it was raining as well. Just not funny any more, is it?
Need a quick shot of Summer? How’s this?
Never one to scrape the barrel, here’s a shot I took in my garden during the late summer. I’ve called it wet apples.
