The Embankment Meadow

Flogged through myself the heat today to run 9.5km, albeit it with a cheeky sunbathing break in the middle at the cricket ground as my legs were getting a bit sore.

I'm slightly puzzled as to why I'm not seeing more insects about at the moment, conditions are perfect yet I barely saw a bee and only a couple of butterflies today. Wonder if we are in a natural calendar gap in species emergence?

The 6 local swfits are still doing their thing, but much higher up today, no level screaming runs for me to try and film.

Today's pictures come from the natural wildflower meadow on the flood bank by our cricket ground. It's a pretty sight at the moment.

  1. I hope there's enough insects around for the swifts. Buttercups are looking superb at the moment

  2. what a beautiful selection of wildflowers. In general here, we feel we should be seeing more insects but some insects are more abundant than usual (specially St mark's flies!) and if you look up into the tree tops here there are loads of hoverflies (that won't come down lower so we can take their photos)

  3. Thank you all! A warmer and buzzier day today

  4. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
