Squinting into the Sun

Yesterday we visited one of our favourite local nature reserves, Dersingham Bog. The heather is in full flower, with loads of bees and insects buzzing about; more dragonflies than I’ve ever seen; and – look! – the sun even made an appearance! As evidenced by our squinting faces:

DH took this superb photo of a some cross leaved heath:

There’s something quite bizarre and alien about it, but I find it really appealing!

He also took this picture of patterns in the trail, which I am itching to turn into stitch somehow or other:

And in the garden this week, we have had a little croaky visitor:


And yet another shot that’s crying out to be turned into stitch:

Ah, nature. Just stop, notice, appreciate.
