I’ve signed up to 30 Days Wild with the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust,  with the aim of blogging each day, a little bit of the nature of my world.

 

It rained a lot yesterday and cold too, we even felt the need to put the heating back on. The twentieth of June for goodness sake.  By now I was hoping for some  Leisure time watching dragon and damselflies by the pond, whilst sat in sunshine. But it hasn’t happened yet.  Even the bees weren’t hanging around very long.

The garden ferns are fully unfurled now. Such verdant greens

After a heavy downpour, mist hangs around in the trees above the Goyt Valley.
