A local walk

A walk in the sunshine yesterday. I see that Trevor has been tidying up Angie's bench. He has filled the planters with white flowers, put fresh flowers in the vases, filled up the water containers for the dog bowl, and put some peanuts in the bird feeder. All looks very nice. 
The hens are seeking some shade and having a dust bath. 

This cottage always has flowers in the front garden. 

A stack of hay has been burnt to the ground. I wonder how that happened. 


Today I went to Go Outdoors I needed some maps for a future trip. I wanted to buy some gas cylinders for my camping cooker, but they were sold out. I think people are buying these cookers to use in the home, in case the mains gas gets cut off. 
It's been super warm today, I had to delay Billy's walk until 6.30pm, when it had cooled down a bit. 
Cheerio for now. Enjoy your Sunday.  ilona

  1. Trevor does a beautiful job of keeping Angie’s spot beautiful and inviting. Hope you and Billy had a great walk.

    1. Billy has the energy and enthusiasm of a puppy, even though he is ten years old. We do a one hour very fast walk which keeps us both fit.

  2. We have had haystacks burn. Lightening strikes can do it, but I'd guess something from the roadside ignited the grass and it spread to the stack. A cigarette butt is the obvious blame, but a dragging chain striking a rock can spark, over heated things can ignite grass, etc. slimsdotter in Wyoming, US

    1. Hay stacks can go up in flames for any number of reason, like you say. The fire brigade attended this one and put a warning banner across the gate saying do not enter. I think the only thing they can do is to let it burn itself out.
