The first week of June

June has begun with a burst of blue skies and rare sunshine this year - hooray!

Every minute possible is spent outside, soaking up the warmth and pottering around in the fields or forestry.

A few snapshots from this first week of summer:

 
Early morning sunlight in the forestry
 
 

 
Cotton buds
 

 
Daisies are everywhere

 
Fields filled with golden buttercups
 
 
 
A jar full of feathers
 
 
 
A lone dandelion
 
 
 
Treasures found on an evening walk
 
 
 
Sitting in traffic in the sunshine
 

 
In our local bookshop.  I think I may have to buy...
 
Hope you're enjoying June as much as we are so far.  Until next week - ~Siobhan xo

Oh, those summery shots are wonderful, Siobhan! What a beautiful part of the world to live in! :) And that ghostie book looks very interesting. I'll have to look that up!

Enjoy the lovely weather! (We've got the heating on in wintery Australia.) ❤

Thanks Emma! We've had really dreadful weather here for the past year so this sun is a bit hypnotic! haha! It's hard to imagine the heating on in Australia - brrr! xo

Hi Siobhan,
Hooray, flaming June is here to stay, I hope! :-)
It is lovely to visit you this morning and to see your forest photos. I enjoy blogging more than facebook in some ways, and seeing people's nature posts of the seasons.
I think you are holding a beautiful owl feather. A special gift from the birds!
Enjoy the ghost book, it looks like it will be a spooky read!

So glad you dropped by Jo! I had absolutely *no idea* that was an owl feather - I'm over the Moon that I found such a treasure! We have a large owl here, I've only seen him flying at very late dusk, and I'm guessing it's around 3-4 foot span. I love them and your own post was magic! xo

Haha. Yes, I've already been told by an American buddy, in one of the northern states, that we've got a pretty wussy idea of what qualifies as "cold" in Oz. ;)
