August draws to a close at Kentle Wood
Lovely late summer weather impelled me to visit Kentle Wood; I had kept clear of the area for long enough to re-kindle my enthusiasm and I bounced, Tigger-esque, over the entry stile. (Perhaps there is a scintilla of exaggeration in the use of the word 'bounced', but in my imagination...) It is true that few flowers remain to beguile insects but blackberries are ripening and brilliant blue or green flies swarm in to mop up the juices.
