Nature Ramble

I have to say I'm not really the outdoorsy type. But in the recent glorious summer sunshine, even I wanted to get out and enjoy it. So on the past two Sunday mornings, I've been getting out to the countryside and going for a walk in the fields.

While I was out, I was lucky enough to spot these timid creatures.

And I was delighted to see so many flowers...
The country people have quaint customs...
And I walked so far, I started to wonder just which country I was in...
I was certainly glad I had a stout pair of boots...
Yes, okay, you've guessed it. When I say 'countryside', I mean just on the outskirts of the city, and the 'fields' in question are scattered with cars and their boots full of old junk. But I did do a lot of walking - over three hours to get around the whole thing! I might take a flask of tea and pack of Kendal Mint Cake with me next time!

Lovely finds! The teacup in the last picture is gorgeous! Despite her sad face, I think it's beautiful!
