A few weeks ago we spent a weekend at our summer house on a tiny island just off the west coast. My mum, who grew up there, had already been there a couple of weeks, and we helped her clearing away trees and shrubs from what once was a garden/small potato field. The weather wasn’t great, […]
I came across these beauties beneath the big lark at the top of one of our fields, one day in August as I was on my way to check on the horses in the big pasture.
