Horses, Blackberries and Gladioli

12 Aug

1   The horses are back in the field! They’ve been away for the last month so it was a delight to have them back again.

2    I had a feast today – of beautiful ripe blackberries as I walked up the lane from town this morning.

3   The hoolie that blew past over the weekend, the tail-end of Bertha, brought down one of our yellow Gladioli so we have it indoors.

      Hello Marilyn, the horses are taken to one of the three fields behind us but we catch only occasional glimpses of them then so it is really lovely to have them back again so close. 🙂
