the first fieldfairs have arrived today and only a few swallows left on my Cumbria hillside
LittleAnn......that seems early for Fieldfares doesn't it ? None around here yet (SWest)
usually end September/October. Swallows not so obvious but no "lining up" on the wires yet .......hope we've got a bit longer yet
..the sooner it's here...the sooner it'll be over and Spring will be around the corner...and we'll see the return of the internet trolls...refreshed and reworked... and we'll be arguing over the ID of some old bush someone's had in their garden for 50 years.....lol....
I bet Cumbria is lovely when the trees turn. My favourite times of the year are the times of change from one season to another. I just love the anticipation of what's to come.
log burner on here too. Lovely and cosy x
I just love the lakes but its been many years since I've been there sadly. Still, I've done quite a few of the peaks. Scafell,Helvellyn,Skiddaw, Old Man of Coniston,Red Pike above Buttermere, the 'High Street' in the eastern fells. Ah,memories.
Hi little ann, missed you hope you are okay
I have chinese lanterns now turning orange, usually happens in late September.
One Hellebore has flowers on
Fishy, never been trecking up mountains but loved the pub near the top of Rinos ? pass had to be in 1st gear for last bit of the mountain / big hill. My fave place in lakes is Coniston.
We have had one Hellebore flowering since end of July, yet the Cosmos grown from seed is just started flowering the seasons seemed to be mixed up.
The swallows hereabouts have done a u-turn!
I've got the sound of big ploughing tractor and seed drill.
In the low sunshine I can see dragonflies lit up against a shade backdrop.
