The year is rolling right along. Something beautiful about the countryside as late summer segues into autumn. A calmness and contentedness at natures job well done.
The hay harvested and bailed. The sunflowers now waiting to dry out before being cut.
The hedgerows thick with rose hips. In Scotland a sure sign that a cold winter lies ahead.
The fields of Queen Anne's lace now beginning to wilt in the heat. The Rosebay willow herb largely gone. Only a few wild orchids left in the bottom of the valleys.
It is coming up to year since Sophie broke her first leg. The second would follow soon after. Looking at her it's difficult to believe there was ever a problem.
