Roadside collage


Already, much of what is here is going over, July's colour lapsing into the dullness of August. Some of the barley is harvested, the rest and the wheat will soon follow.
Lughnasadh, Lammas, loaf-mass.

(Molly is doing very well; no further anaesthetic, poking or incisions are recommended, at least for the moment. Tom says he'll never get cross about her barking again, and if he does I'm to remind him he said that. But I won't.)

Lovely collage and I'm glad to hear that your Molly is doing well. I can't believe that August is upon us and that fall will shortly follow. Enjoy what' s left of the summer.

Glad to know Mol is out of the rough.

Rains are thick and heavy out here, today was sunny though. Does August bring forth its own blooms where you stay?

Thanks for the special mention and the award, it made my day :)

I like your additional info about the effectiveness of a dog as pondweed remover. Maybe I should write in to the programme?

Nice collage. I've been taking close-ups of alpine flowers myself lately.

Thank Mol for her comforting lick, & you, for your hug of course!
We ride the tides, so to say.
Honey seems none the worse for her ordeal, sulked a little at me, for daring to take her there, but is all sweet & snuggly again.
I know the harvest time is a time of bounty & & splendour, & winter's rest is needed, but...

'The dullness of August...' ah, yes, you've just poked at this morning's mood with a big, poky stick.

Glad Molly-dog's doing well. Love the collage, as always.

Lovely collage - conjures up a picture of all that is idyllic. Hope Molly continues to do well.

I too am not too keen on August,
it is that gap time before the September purples come through.
Although I now see the Sept flowers of my childhood already in bloom - fireweed etc.

I hope Molly is on the mend. Wewe're having a tick fest here -ugg.

I know EXACTLY how you feel about poorly animals.
One of my cats has been off colour and the relief when she's recovering is HUGE..

Glad to hear Molly's doing well. It's always scary when these things happen.
