Let me lead you by the hand!

Let me take you by the hand and lead you along our little lane, turning right out of our gate. The lane has put on it's summer mantle now. The trees are in full leaf and cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) gently sways in the breeze.
 Near our neighbouring field's gate it's mixed with red campion, 
 forming a delicious sea of frothy white and soft pink.
I haven't gone any further than about 1/2 mile from our gate and still I have taken so many photographs and will yet again have trouble deciding on the one that I want to use for my daily blip
After taking time to produce a detailed picture of the campion flowers (silene dioica) and enjoying the beautiful details in this tiny (no more than 1cm across) flowers
it's time to go home only to be greeted by the laburnum tree which is fast becoming the most photographed tree in our garden!
And that garden is also putting on it's very best summer show. Above a detail of those detailed aquilegia flowers, otherwise known as granny's bonnets or columbines
 which is intermingling with the blue Jacob's Ladder along the fence.
Every year it's a surprise where the next angelica flower will appear. This plant tends to self seed itself everywhere and after flowering in it's second year dies. But by that time many seedlings have found a new spot to start the cycle all over again! This year it's flowering underneath the bird feeders.
