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
