insects and ice cream...











a visit to one of my favourite tiny nature reserves, the only clue that it's there are two amazing carved posts either side of the entrance
sitting in the dappled shade of the chestnut tree
looking for great green bush crickets amongst the long grass
finding instead an Adonis blue butterfly
catching the boy playing with his baby brother
then walking over the Common to Winstones Ice Cream factory
I had a strawberry ice cream milkshake, Alfie had a banana and toffee cone and Ted chose a vanilla tub with chocolate sauce!
