The wind is whistling in the wires. Plants are shivering. They won't pose properly for photos. And I am longing for autumn. Soon, soon. I'm waiting for that particular smell which comes with it but I can't sense it yet, breathe in as I might.
Life is still busy. I haven't even opened all the envelopes that were waiting for me when I got back from our trip round England and Scotland. I haven't even looked through my photos - and that's saying something!
So . . . just time for another stuck-foot post.
If you didn't read the last one, it's where all the photos were taken from the same spot. Not only that, I put my foot down and didn't move it. It stayed 'stuck' in the same place all the time - even when it was awkward.
I was lucky for I was soon joined by this White Butterfly. I'm told (on good authority) it's a Green Veined White (Pieris napi) but, since I didn't notice any green veins . . . I'm feeling a bit wobbly about naming it.
I may not think it is autumn - but some plants seem definitely to be 'of the season'.
Others are simply dead - like this broken branch of gorse (Ulex europaeus). The rest of the bush is fine.
Scarlet Pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis) is a bright, end of summer delight.
And there too was this . . . whatever it is.
Are you stuck-footing yet?
(If you have a stuck foot post you'd like people to know about, leave a note in the comments and I'll put a link to it here.)
