It’s the first of August and the slopes are positively buzzing with a million,
no a BILLION, grasshoppers!
The wildlife currently in the woods and on the slopes is amazing.
In just one hour I saw dozens of different types of butterflies
along with a variety of bees.
This is what a ‘proper’ meadow should look like – tall grasses full of thistles,
clover and a vast array of plants I don’t happen to know the names of,
along with mowed areas for people to enjoy the open spaces
with a picnic or simply sunbathing on a summer’s day.
We’re extremely lucky to have such a wonderful area right on our doorsteps
to enjoy whenever we want to.
Long may it continue to be as fabulous as it is right now…
