Blowing out the cobwebs...

As you may have read, we have been doing some renovations over the past few weeks, then had my Mum and Dad to visit for a lovely week! The day they left I started a cold and felt pretty crappy all last week, so we really haven't had the chance to be out that much this week - despite the weather being uncharacteristically sunny!

So today - we packed a picnic and headed out. The coastal path beckoned on such a lovely day. It was HOT!

We walked through some fields with rare breed cattle - they were lovely
...and Kenny got to try out his new MACRO lens (he is quite pleased)

Most of the butterflies didn't want to know - but this one chap was very accommodating!

He even posed - so we could get some "underside" shots of him!

All in all a GOOD day! My cold is still here so I struggled a little more than usual, but so worth it.

PS: With reference to my last post about the Rico Can Can wool - I have now finished TWO scarves!! One is already in Manchester, waiting to be opened by my lovely, cancer battling friend Clare on Tuesday, and the other is waiting for the ends to be sewn in and the weather to turn a little colder :)

The pics of the caterpillar and the butterfly were absolutely botany exquisite! You're so very lucky to have such a talented husband. Need pix of the scarf, too!

Same for me, I would like a piccie of the scarf. The photos were amazing, I would love to have a go at that.
