A few pictures from Sunday’s trip to Harcourt Arboretum which, due to a mix-up on my part, took place at high noon on one of the hottest days of the year. Since my last visit the meadows have bloomed, the ferns have unfurled and this year’s batch of peacocks have turned into stroppy teenagers.

That’s one unforgivingly hot meadow
Grasses and buttercups
Oxe eye daises – my favourite
Really cool
