What happened to August?

Or more to the point, why no post? Here are some of the best bits before I’m posting again asking the same question about September:

The North Coast between Plouescat and Goulven. Lots of dunes and fine, shimmering white sand. Not that much visited previously. But will become a new favourite I think.




The first of the plum harvest. Damsons and ‘Victoria’.


Morning Glory (Ipomea) ‘Milky Way’ and ‘Grandpa Ott’. From seed this spring. One pot of these is clambering into the overhanging oak branches. No leaves left in the vines, but still a new flower every morning.

Sooty Copper. The purple iridescence is quite marked when the sun catches the wings…

Common Blue. Actually not that common here. This is the one of the very few. I’ve seen this year – on Sea Holly – at Plouescat
