Summer days-----garden,a beach to ourselves and a nature reserve.


The garden is growing and the bees are back at last, although the butterflies are very late this year! 
We went to Allonby beach and had all of it to ourselves! There was a strong wind blowing but it was still hot! Those are Scottish hills over the other side of the Solway Firth.

Posted by PicasaThe next day was even warmer so we nipped out to Silver Meadows wetlands reserve. We have often passed it en route to Keswick and always wondered what the little buildings are for and now we know!
They are bird hides complete with little benches and bird posters to help to identify any birds that are new to you.

Next day it poured down and our river rose fast and managed to erode much of the bank which had only been built back up  up about ten days ago!

Hi Dorothy,
The beach is Allonby in West Cumbria. Unusual to get it so empty especially as it was so warm!:o)
I tried to do the text when I uploaded the pictures but Blogger was being stubborn!

Hi Glenda,
If you go right back to my very first posting on my blog, you will see a drawing of Rubbybanks Mill (a very old name)-----so that is where the Rubbybanks comes from------snd I am down by the river.
