My family on Father's Day, hiding in the shrubbery! Happy Father's Day Dad, love you, look forward to seeing you soon.
Here are some pictures from the walk home from work this evening. It was another beautiful day in Devon.

Valerian growing in the church wall. This stuff grows out of the walls everywhere round here.

A bird higher than the moon

Sweet smelling honeysuckle in the hedgerow provided an amazing fragrance all the way home.

These weren't so sweet smelling!

Foxgloves are common in the hedgerows at this time of year.

as are Bracken and ferns. Some of the hedgerows that line the lanes are about 12ft high at the moment.

Sunshine on the fields

The rose on the workshop wall in bloom. The garden is entering its summer phase now, lots of new growth on the plants I planted out over the past couple of years.

Well I'll try to post some pot pics tomorrow.

Happy Monday all.

Now that you found the shrubbery you must cut down the forest with a herring!
Lovely family photo and the nature pics look very much like the mountains of North Carolina. Happy Fathers Day! (Monty Python if you are wondering about the herring, sorry! we talk of shrubbery a lot around here, haha)
