NATURES DELIGHTS. Images from 2010
Notes from a Lancashire Countryman.
Here in the north west of England we have had an average summer at best. The weather has let the sun worshippers down for the main part. It is true there were days when the weather provided some glorious sunny spells that gave us a glimpse of how we perceive summer should be. We had a prolonged dry spell resulting in a hose pipe ban yet the sun was a scarce commodity and cloud cover was the norm for much of this dry spell.
Nevertheless, nature provided her usual floral extravaganza which attracted the insects which pollinate them to provide the seed which will in turn provide us with the floral extravaganza next season. Here I would like to share with you some of nature's delights that I have witnessed in the countryside of North West England and my garden during the year of 2010.

Insects abound in summer
Insects are as much a apart of summer as the flora. Here are a few I have encountered this summer..
The Enjoyment of summer
Fellow nature lovers I Hope you enjoyed your summer as much as I enjoyed mine. Fellow hubbers in the southern hemisphere have all their summer to look forward to. Good luck I hope you have a good one.
