I should be working, or
I should be working, or preparing lunch, or doing some laundry, or tidying the flat, or going for a walk or something. But, no, I’m working on posting some pictures here for your delectation. Don’t say that I don’t look after you.
Butterfly on ragwort, spotted as I strolled by the harbour on the hottest day of the year.
A decaying hulk by the boatyard at Dell Quay. I may go back and take more pictures of this on another day.
Chichester Harbour, looking west from near Copperas Point towards Oldpark Wood. Anyone that tells you that Chichester Harbour is not one of the most beautiful places in the country is talking pants.
Trees at the high water line, where Salterns Copse meets the briny. The roots seem to be clinging on for dear life to the banks of the channel here, and make fantastic shapes as they struggle.
Knapweed growing near Copperas Point. There was a huge patch of this plant, that was attracting a large number of small bumblebees.
Reedmace growing in the canal west of Crosbie Bridge at Donnington. The world and its wife (including me) usually calls this plant "bullrush", but strictly speaking that is something else entirely.
