Fly on Flower - June 2nd 2013

I don't usually post pictures with flowers on Message in a Milk Bottle but I'll be making an exception over the next few months while I take a break from my hedgerow blog, Loose and Leafy. Hope you don't mind. (I'll try not to include anything too sentimental.)

BRIDGE-UP

I'm not vanished - but the weather has been dreary and you would have ended up depressed if obliged to view grey pictures day after day after . . .

The light is brightening, the sun reviving, so maybe daily posts will resume soon. In the meantime - still no colour . . . but never mind, it's a weekend.
