Hemp Agrimony

Tuesday, July 28th 2009

It has been mixed weather today.

Harry is back again working on the cladding of the new workshop. Hurrah!

Hemp Agrimony

Through the scrapes the Hemp Agrimony or Eupatorium (pictured here) is coming into full flower and looks absolutely beautiful. The little meadow behind the Sand Martins is also looking good with the Pepper Saxifrage fully out. On the moorland Harebells are showing their nodding heads. Everywhere the grasses are tall and in full flower. Their shades of brown, fawn, gold and cream are a delight to behold. They were swaying in the slight breeze today and the rain was light enough that the drops were sparkling on the flower heads.

There are signs of Water Voles at the dipping platforms. The reeds show the unmistakeable evidence of having been eaten by our voley friends. They might not have been seen so much this summer - but they are most certainly still here!
