"August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time." ―Sylvia Plath
Enjoyed the last bit of summer and sun yesterday at some Lavender fields that were only an hour and half away from London! After todays gross rain I’m so happy I did cause I’m pretty sure summers over for London. Winter is coming!
TELL ME • Is there still any summer left where you are in the world?

Picnic views at Stowe...I've had a few picnics at @nationaltrust properties but this is one of my favourites as just look at that view.
Just wanting Jane Austen to ride past the house in her fine carriage...screaming possum, could I pinch a cup of sugar darling! #kellyintheuk
Fluffy clouds by the sea - A silly long exposure by Portland Bill lighthouse in Dorset. The time of this was 6 minutes or so just after midday. I love the effect that this has created. What do you think? #dorset
Golden hour at the lighthouse... •
Arrived at Neist point just in time to witness one of the best sunsets I have ever seen in the uk (shot to come later of that) Everything about this place is utterly stunning, after a mad dash from one end of Skye to another I was certainly rewarded 🤤
If you’re lucky enough to be in Edinburgh on a warm and even somewhat sunny day, this is what Princes Street Gardens looks like. It’s a perfect destination for picnics and open-air lounging or reading, especially if you enjoy the sound of bagpipes on the breeze.
@Regrann from @photosofbritain - 🌿🍄Somewhere, over the rainbow, there is a hobbit house waiting for you... 🌷🐝 Could you move into this gorgeous cottage in beautiful Scotland? Love this shot by @little.scottish.one who says, "I met the lady who is lucky enough to live here. She's been here for over 50 years, I can't help feeling envious!"... I don't blame her!
This is Fortingall, a small village in highland Perthshire, Scotland, in Glen Lyon. According to legend it was the birthplace of Pontius Pilate who was born well before the Roman conquest. Although a number of other locations make similar claims. But I do love a good legend! This place is also famous for its churchyard yew tree that is said to be the oldest living thing in Europe, over 5,000 years old. Although the rotten roast spud I had last week in my local pub could give it a good run for its money.
At its peak the tree had a girth of 56 feet and there was a time when it was possible to drive through it. Regrettably, the trunk started to split –due it is thought to the fires lit at its roots during the annual Beltane Rites – carried out here from pagan times until the late 19th century. New shoots have formed and the tree continues. Its branches overhang the burial place of the Stewarts of Garth, descendants of Alexander Stewart the infamous third son of Robert II – the Wolf of Badenoch. How amazing is that? Real life Game of Thrones!
Yep... I think I could live here, surrounded by this incredible ancient history. Could you? Beautiful shot by @little.scottish.one 🇬🇧 Visit Blimey.com (see link on my profile) to read more!
