Let's backtrack to June of this year when Willow of 'Willow's Cottage' in California came and stayed with us, along with her husband. We began in the town with coffee and cookies and here we are walking on Two Tree Island in the Thames estuary. A rather blustery day but the wild flowers were out in abundance so I made it the focus of this visit. We had a great walk but in stopping to take pictures I managed to lose a lovely pair of sheepskin mittens. Yes, sheepskin mittens in June, that was the kind of Summer we had this year.
What is interesting is the fact that much of this area was burnt black when a fire raged through last year. How well nature renews itself.
