Sunsets, flowers, hens and Button (again)
These photos were taken earlier in the month but I just love summer and the sunsets. Oh and the sun and warmth too of course! As indeed do the hens and Madam Button.
And on sunny days I can hang my washing on the line, just as the Sandside women have done since the house was built in 1860(ish) :-)
And the joy of flowers in the garden - remember this was back at the beginning of the month....
The bees just love all the flowers. Here a carder bee is enjoying the nectar from the cornflowers.
The hens enjoy the sunshine too of course. One of my Light Sussex hens having a wander across the grass. A girl on a mission, clearly.
She joins another of the hens for some mutual rootling....
And when it gets too hot in the sun hens and cockerels retreat to a shady spot beneath the grey willows. You need to look closely as they are well camouflaged!
And, of course, Button likes to snooze in the sun - here she is under the fennel! She comes in smelling rather lovely sometimes!
