An Expedition to Nailsea

Bright and warm again this morning - definitely starting to get used to this! Noticed that the hayfields opposite us in Charlcombe Valley have been cropped - last year they weren't cut at all until September, so there's chance for a second lot of hay.
Finished off working on the top bit of garden. Clouds had started to bubble up by then.
These purple flowers keep on going! 
It looks as if we are going to have a bumper crop of grapes at this rate! 
Then it was off into the afternoon to Nailsea to meeet up with Richard and Barbara, family and friends for a barbecue. 
Went through Marksbury. 
Post delicious barbecue and puddings, it was time to contemplate the sky.
They even have a phone box outside their house - it gets used about once a fortnight apparently. The cash box was broken into recently - Richard reckoned the perpetrators might have got 4p if they were lucky.
On the way back, coming out of Chew Magna Su spotted these horses and foals.
 This foal was a little more reserved.
This day a year ago, the temperature on Symi was climbing and we were adapting to spending time outside after daylight. Enjoyed the evening light on the windmills.
