For our Sunday morning walk we went to Hadley Wood to see the Michaelmas Daises. We have a few in our front Garden and they are lovely but there is nothing like seeing them en masse.
Valerie wandered off as I was taking this photograph. She often does this.
She came back and as we were chatting Valerie spotted a Red Admiral. Once so common but now it is even more special to see one.
We also spotted a bay tree someone had sneaked in since our last visit.
Bay is so tasty with its mystery and allure in food but I am not sure if this will be allowed to flourish here.
We headed home through trees that are always so beautiful I must photograph them.
