How wonderful to have such a visitor!
It must be a delight to wander around and watch these beauties. Super shot, Pam.

I am glad the Sand Martin shot brought back a happy memory; it's always the case, it is the little things which we remember (small violets, house martins arriving and playing at "building the nest", the first Lady's Smock of the year, a harebell.....).

Best wishes to you, dear lady. I was up at Castlerigg the other day. Calm protective and reassuring stones....

Pam J has replied to Joan+
Thankyou Joan !!

Yes.. totally.. the small things bring the greatest emotions always.

Castlerigg is one of the most gentle calm circles I know.... but if you ever get down to the Bristol area.... go to Stanton Drew. One of THE best kept Circle secrets there is.. and considering it can hold the same place as either Stonehenge or Avebury.... is so surprising.

Butterflies are getting more and more seldom, it seems.
I hate that, 'cause i love butterflies.

Pam J has replied to Roger's View
Thankyou Roger !

It worries me to see less and less. Also far less Bees... these are so much a large part of the food producing chain with pollination.

25% of of all we eat requires pollination. We SHOULD be concerned .
