An Outdoor Refuge

The last couple of days have gone grey and cold, with a scythingly chill wind cutting through from the north east. This has reduced the amount of insect life about, but there's still been a fair few buff tailed bumble queens who have been buzzing about at low level looking for nest holes.

Which in this weather is the best thing to do. I don't mind hunkering down when its like this.

Our cricket ground is a very peaceful place at the moment and unlike Sconce Park there is not need to employ any breath holding techniques when you pass anyone, as there is no-one there. Finally the water has receded, but the main ground has been totally ruined for the season, if it and when it ever happens given we are looking at 6 months of restrictions of one form or another.

I'm also keeping an eye on the place, gutted captain's car and all.

Stay well.

  1. Glad to hear you've found a little sanctuary in the form of the cricket field. It's definitely a lot quieter outside than it was last weekend.

  2. Good to hear you have found a haven - it does look quiet. Lovely photos. Stay safe and well.

  3. Thank you, I enjoy getting out when I can
