Another sign of these rapid fire summers is the early appearance of harebells up on the Sconce. I swear that a few years ago it was late August before these little pastel beauties appeared. But here they are in the middle of July, clustering as they do on the sun facing slopes of the Sconce Earthwork, bells jingling in the wind.
Even a hardened cynic like me thinks they are pretty.
