I WAS UP LAST NIGHT TO SEE HOW DARK IT WAS AT THE DARKEST TIME OF THE DAY…… I WAS TOLD THAT THAT WOULD BE AT 2 AM…..

IT WASN’T VERY DARK…… I COULD STILL SEE THE LICENCE PLATES ON THE CAR….. AN HOUR LATER, I WATCHED THE NEW LIGHT OF THE DAY INCREASING IN THE EAST…..

OF COURSE…… THE BIRDS SANG ALL NIGHT…….

 THE SAD NEWS IS THAT THE DAYS WILL START TO SHORTEN AND IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE WE ARE FACING THE COLD LONG NIGHTS OF WINTER……

 WE DEFINITELY HAVE TO ENJOY SUMMER FOR THE SHORT TIME IT IS HERE…..

 THIS PICTURE SHOWS A FEMALE  “BLACK MEADOW HAWK” IT IS A TYPE OF DRAGON FLY…….

 THERE ARE 8 DIFFERENT SPECIES OF MEADOW HAWK DRAGON FLIES IN OUR AREA…….

 IT’S A VERY WARM 11C (52F) AND NO CLOUDS IN SIGHT…….  YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE….
