Perpetual journal July and the flowers of the Ridge.
You have seen lots of these pages already but I thought I would show them together.
I have started to look at the flowers that grow along a ridge in the middle of one of our nearby fields. It is a hayfield that cattle graze in at times but this ridge is always overgrown allowing wild flowers and insects to thrive. I started to make a list of the flowers growing there. Of course it changes during the year and it seems year to year because I wrote a list in July 2016 and no rosebay willowherb this year.
It is covered in the pink and white discs of field bindweed and the wind ripples through the grasses like seaweed in the water. Hoping to make some embroideries from this work. Starting gently with drawing the flowers in my journal. We have Haggis the dog for the next 12 days so more walks to help with the observatio.
