Meadow Larks

Isn't this THE most perfect meadow? Full of poppies, white campion, birds and butterflies. It fair took my breath away. I am hopelessly romantic about meadows. I stayed for ages taking 16465 pictures of poppies and such-like.



Then when you turn the other way, you see this...



And that, my dears, is Burgh Island. A beautiful art deco hotel built in 1929, beloved by Agatha Christie and Noel Coward. I'd love to go. It's about the only place I would consider it appropriate to wear my wedding dress again (1930s grey silk chiffon floor length number). The rooms are all named after former highly glamorous occupants, and are a fair penny or two. Siiigh.

Let's look at some more meadow, shall we?







You might also spot this strange native creature. Hello!



We're off camping tomorrow for a long weekend of *fingers crossed* no hapless accidents and lots of sunshine-y fun. We're going to go to this on Saturday and I am quite sure that Iris will want a pony ride. Fun! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
