Going for a walk

So, another pound and a half of strawberries picked yesterday afternoon.  They'll be cooked and in the freezer by the end of the day.  

I didn't do any gardening today, instead went for a six mile walk in a nearby deserted valley - mostly grass, a few trees and bog plants so nothing pretty to see.  If you want to see fantastic wild flowers in great scenery, I recommend the Pembrokeshire coastal path (South Wales) in May/ June:
My photos really don't do it justice.  Seeing Thrift, Ox-Eye Daisy, Squill and Sea Campion in their natural habitat is stunning.  

This looks like someone has alternated Thrift and Sea Campion along the path, but it's entirely natural.  Inspiring stuff.

So, off to eat some home-grown produce now - potatoes and broad beans followed by raspberries, will give the strawberries a miss for one day!
