Summer in Suffolk...Poppies, Sheep and Roses!

We took a drive out into the beautiful Suffolk countryside a few weeks ago - the weather was perfect.

Unbroken blue skies and just a rustle of a breeze.

We came across this field of scarlet poppies, just by chance........ near Bury St. Edmunds. 

The intense colour attracted us, as well as many beetles and insects - what a feast!!
In contrast, we watched these sheep finding the cool green grass, under a huge spreading tree. 
    This was near the Bradfield Park Campsite, where the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers set up camp and enjoy the outdoor life - not always in such perfect weather, I might add!


The palest pink rose - Suffolk grows them best!
