and berries galore
Fuzzy to view because of brightness and focus being mainly on the aging leaves but it still smells of summer.
Then I started playing
Not a good picture, but I just wouldn’t let it go
And a little something to rest the eye strain of the last
Was going to put the first two of the hawthorn hedge into a tiled gallery but found that it made what was already a blurry image much worse – interesting compression?
Both images much more fun when enlarged

The image blows up so that, should you be so inclined, you can get a better look at the dimpling around the larger leaf. There’s quite a ‘steep’ slope on that surface dimple.
Flowering: May, June and September

Droplets and progress of a beetle
Photography a little eye-watering, but fun watching the beetle.
Early potatoes going over, lettuces bulking up and almost ready to bolt, kale shooting up, red mange-tout peas and runner beans running out of space … and it’s only mid-July. A remarkable year for us.
First warm and sunny day
Depart: 10:00-ish GMT
At which point the battery died
Journey’s end: 12:30-ish GMT
Spring had barely started when May arrived and now, just as the month comes towards its end and the longest day is galloping over yon horizon, everything has gone mad in a grand effort to catch up. Almost more green than the eye can cope with. And, of course, so much cleaning and weeding to be done
Round the corners
The photos are in the order of walking around our small cottage garden
You’ve got to get your colour fix somewhere
