12/08/2017 Roadside photos

Maximum temperature 23C, minimum 11C.   6 km/h NW wind with 19 km/h gusts.  Dry.
Blackberries.

Unknown still trying to identify...

if you can help please let me know...

also unknown.

Chestnuts.

Our friends cat that I am looking after, a contortionist it seems!...

 This one is my favourite, so affectionate...

as above.

Horses over the road.

I suspect this is a flower in the mallow family but again uncertain.  Plus fly.

Again uncertain, but  think this is a Meadow Brown.

A sheltie watching me through a gate.

Fields of daisies.

Maize as far as the eye can see...

maize cobs.

For those that might be interested, I have started my blog on our South African holiday earlier this year.
