Well I suppose it could have been worse. Heavy rain was forecast all morning, and it was certainly chucking it down when it came time for our morning walk. As Jez doesn’t do heavy rain, she stayed curled up in her bed, so I donned my waterproofs and took Max to Upton Country Park.
Fortunately, by the time we got to the lake it had just about stopped raining. While Max was retrieving his stick from the lake the heron paid a brief visit.
We haven’t seen it there for quite some time now.
The rain had left this Wood Cranesbill looking very pretty.
And this little plant was very pretty too.
Sadly, I haven’t a clue what it is. On a positive note, the rain stayed off for the rest of our walk, so it wasn’t as bad as I had been expecting.
A year ago today
We were on Canford Heath where the old trailer had been dumped by one of the gates.
