We had a moderately grey day yesterday, and an utterly filthy one today where I had to clad myself condom like in waterproofs in order to cycle to and from work.
Luckily Monday had been a relatively nice day, and after being really sore and as flexible as an ironing board, I ended up walking for 90 minutes past various mini wildflower meadows around Sconce Park and the River Devon, where the thistles in particular where attracting various beautiful butterflies - large and small skipper, meadow brown and ringlet.
A comma basked in the sun elsewhere. It was a lovely afternoon.
