On the way in... pears growing against the wall.
Normally when I'm somewhere local I don't usually stop in the cafe. Today I felt like a cuppa by the time I got there... and on the counter in front of me.... ooooooh - scones. I couldn't resist a fruit scone with some jam... and excellent it was too.. very light and still warm from cooking.
So now I needed to walk!!
Love the seed heads of this clematis..
Whilst I was busy taking pics of this very large bee, I notice fast movement.. woo hoo a Hummingbird Hawkmoth... haven't seen one for a very long time....
Record shots only but really pleased to get them - they're pretty fast!!
West Dean recently had its Chilli Festival... amazing number of them on display.. just a couple of them here..
Out in the kitchen garden.
On the way, I stopped at the viewpoint at the top of Duncton Hill. The light was better today than most days when I pass this way!
An enjoyable time well spent :)
