Duver dreaming

IMG_4120

Talk about ships that pass in the night – I returned from New York, only for the OH to turn around and head to Toronto!

Today finally saw us breakfasting and dog walking together for the first time in a fortnight – and to celebrate here he is, possibly showing his best side 😉

As many of you know, this blog is named after the National Trust area of land opposite our house called St Helens Duver (pronounced ‘duvver’).  It’s the location for our daily walk with Nimbus, our labradoodle.IMG_4103

Slightly earlier in the year the duver is smothered in sea thrift Armeria maritima.  (First blogged about here four years ago).  It’s a little past its best now, but you get the idea.IMG_4100

Today, however, it felt like all the other wild flowers had joined the thrift, and appeared together – foxglovesIMG_4107

and sea holly Eryngium maritimum.IMG_4111

Allwere looking magnificent in today’s glorious sunshine.  What a perfect day!

    Beautiful picture of your walk. It’s so lovely to know a landscape intimately, as you do here. I love Nimbus! Fantastic name!
