Not Right Now Honey, I'm Busy

So Flaming June has arrived. Housemartins have built their Circus tents beneath the eves and emerge regulary to perform daring swoops, swirls and random acrobatics. Lambs and calves moo and bleat and chew and Whitby strains under the weight of what seems like a million visitors a day. The longest day beckons, yet right now the equinox matters little to the birds and the bees - life is good! The industrious worker pictured above seemed oblivious to my camera as it feasted on the sweet nectar of benevolent Honeysuckle -briefly resplendent on Nature's catwalk in its Summer best, the Honeysuckle flowers will soon wither and fall - but not just yet....
And so to less important matters! I hope to update Inland Review on a more regular basis and I apologize for my lengthy absence these past months. Thank you for taking the time to visit this little corner of North East England and I hope you enjoy reading my ramblings - I certainly get a 'buzz' out of writing them!

Wow what a great picture, love it!
I am looking forward to hearing birds again in the morning, seeing really green grass, bare trees and seeing family.

Thank You! Another couple of weeks and things will be at their greenest. The bumble bee's wings remind me of stained-glass windows - but somebody forgot to stain them!
