A Lovely Day...

In June, a few of us headed off to a farm where the farmer has dedicated a substantial amount of his land to wildflower meadows. As we were walking up I spotted this - a sort of 'honesty' stall - where you can often find eggs, honey or plants for sale, with an 'honesty' box for popping in a few pennies or pounds in exchange.

At the farm we were greeted by John, who led us off through the farm and up to the meadows. The day was slightly dull, unfortunately, but we still managed to see plenty of flowers, hundreds of Burnet moths, and glistening black caterpillars, like caviar covering the plants.
