July the Second…………….Orchids in the gravel……Could get run over……They’re going Sooth to be part of a new wildflower meadow….Spreading the wild….Spreading the word…. https://theorkneynews.scot/2017/08/14/bernie-bell-i-can-hear-the-grass-grow/

July the Third……….The Sparrer that thinks it’s a Hawk!

July the Fourth…………..Fiona-As-Was-Next-door is back, visiting……We potted up some bits & pieces for her, including the orchids from the gravel.

Mike tells me that the botanical name ‘orchid’ comes from the word ‘orkhis’ from the Greek for testicle..…something to do with the shape of the roots…..…

………….I’d say if your testicles look like that – see a doctor!

July the Fifth…………….Misty-moisty day…….Misty-moisty clover leaves……

July the Sixth………….On the rocks……By the Bay………The Crab Collective!……

July the Seventh…………..Lines across the landscape……Cutting silage……..Thinking ahead..….Winter feed for the beasts……..

July the Eighth………………The year moves on…….The return of Maister Keks………….  https://theorkneynews.scot/2018/08/20/poetry-corner-the-hogweed/
