Post gone missing ! and Summer Solstice.

    I did a post last night of what I did for summer solstice but its gone walk abouts, I don't seem to be having much luck with my blog at the moment, first photos went missing now a post, spooky ! Oh well it went something like this.

      I apologise to you for being late wishing you a happy summer solstice but Iv being so busy this week that Iv not had time to post. Friday was a day for appointments and shopping as the fridge and cupboards where bare, just a limp piece of celery the odd tomato and a yogurt, maybe that is exaggerating a bit but you get my drift. Then after our evening meal at 830 pm I went out into the woods with my friend Mary to see if we could see any badgers and to just be out with mother nature for a while on such a special day. After we wandered for a while we plonked our behinds down near a badger sett, there are quite a few in our woods some which look as if they are no longer used and others that are. We sat for at least 1 and half hours just listening to the birds whispering good night to each other and the little animals scurrying off to bed cosy for the night. It was about 10 pm when the sky started to darken but not black it was still quite bright. We didn't see any badgers maybe they saw us, I did comment to Mary that they where probably sat behind us waiting for us to skip off home so they could come out to play.
   As we left the woods at about 10 50 pm the beautiful lady moon greeted us in all her glory to light the lanes for us to see our way home. We are going out tonight to see if we can see the super moon, I know it was last night but seen as neither of us was able to go last night we are venturing out tonight up to the next village which is higher than we are so we will get a better view IF the weather improves as at the moment we have rain, rain and more rain, but I think its pretty much the same up and down the country.
    I do hope you all had a lovely solstice and enjoyed what ever you where doing. Love and blessing to you all, Jill xxx


  1. Happy Summer Solstice !! I was late too ; )
    Your walk sounds so wonderful. I wish I lived close to the Woods. I love the Woods, but I live close to the beach, well 7 km removed, but that isn't far.
    Have a great day.

  2. That sounds like food for the soul Jilly.

  3. Sitting waiting to watch badgers come out to play is something that I must put on my list of things to do before I get too old - you are lucky to be able to just walk upto the woods and watch something as special as that - I am envious - hope you get to see the super moon too xxxx

  4. Sounds like a perfect sort of evening to me Jill, at one with mother nature. Enjoy your week!

  5. Sounds like a lovely way to spend an evening.

  6. I would love to see a badger in its own habitat, all I see is dead one's on the side of the road. I hope yours are safe from this awful cull.
    Luckily our moon shone clear and bright down here so we were able to bask in it.
