Monday 25 August

The Lower Burgh has been our walk for a while but I am feeling much better now so I will be able to move on, although being able to come here has stopped me becoming stir crazy.

This is the edge of Plock Wood, it has plenty of different trees the one that stands out at the moment is the White Poplar

It's stunning and looks like it's in flower but it's just the leaves which are almost white on the back fluttering.

On the Lower Burgh again

I was getting some photos of Meadowsweet Seeds when I realised I had disturbed this stunning spider, I had unwittingly destroyed her web but before I left she was already repairing and rebuilding.

Garden Spider - Araneus diadematus
