Bee on a Flower

 

The flower in this picture is Centaurea montana.

The bees like them and I managed to get a picture of one having a drink.

Love the colour of these flowers, look very jewel like. Cornflowers are from the same family as is Knapweed.

This is from my sisters garden.  As I live in a flat I have no proper garden although there is a small area of grass and some flowers out the front.

It would be great if our grass verges and grassy areas could be covered in wildflowers and not mown down all the time.

Our towns and cities would be better places if we had more nature in them.

Let the grass and flowers grow.Screenshot_2017-06-07-21-59-33

Sunset Clouds

It has been a very hot day in Cardiff.  It’s cooling a bit now.

I put some water out for the birds. The hot weather is no doubt hard on them. Hopefully it will have helped a bit.

Noticed these Cirrus clouds gracing the evening sky.  As a child I knew them as Mares tails and still like to call them that, just as I like to call the white crested waves, Neptunes horses.

Rose Bud

This picture was taken in my sisters garden.

She has a beautiful garden with a lot of wildlife and lovely flowers including a number of rose bushes. I noticed that one of the rose buds had a drop of water on it.

The picture isn’t brilliant but I thought it looked rather nice.

As an added bonus her roses are wonderfully scented.Screenshot_2017-06-07-21-58-35

Rainbow

Took this picture of a Rainbow a few weeks ago. Despite knowing what causes a Rainbow I still think that they are a wonderful and beautiful sight.

I find myself stopping to look at one even though I’ve seen so many and I have so many pictures I’ve taken over the years.

The science behind them is fascinating yet I also see the beauty in them too.

Nature is amazing. It’s all around us.  Yet some people don’t notice what is in front of them.

 

New season dates 11-24 June @ Bryn Celli Ddu landscape project

Tinkinswood Archaeology

We are happy to say that we are returning to Bryn Celli Ddu for our third year of excavation between the 11-24 of June! It’s free to take part, so we hope you’ll sign up.

The project focuses on the landscape surrounding Wales’ famous Neolithic passage tomb. During the last two years we have built up a picture that includes a Late Neolithic / Bronze Age cairn, along with several rock art panels situated close by, making a case for a complex multi-period landscape. We return to continue to work in the vicinity, looking further at a possible Neolithic causewayed enclosure and ring-ditch in the same area.

Last year, the team opened a 10m × 10m trench over the north-east quarter of a circular Neolithic/early Bronze Age cairn lying some 30m south-west of the main Neolithic passage tomb. We recorded the cairn in plan, recovered samples for radiocarbon dating, and re-excavated…
