Bike ride to Fineshade and Kings Cliffe

Sat, 2013 Jul 27 11:47 AM British Summer Time
With Harry. Hot day. A few hills. loads of butterflies. Just under 18 miles.

Fab field of wild flowers just outside Gretton.  Then downhill to Harringworth, up to Wakerley, down to the A43, across and down then up to Fineshade Woods. Quick stop for a drink, then we rode through the woods with a pause-papillons. No photos, mind, they hardly stopped fluttering.

Down to the edge of Kings Cliffe, past Blatherwick Lake, turn off to Laxton, cross A43 again. Through Laxton, downhill to Harringworth, then the long slow hill back into Gretton.

Had to go back later and take some more pics.

Thanks, Roy. I hadn't noticed it over the hedge until I was on the bike. A year or two ago it was all poppies - now it's planted with trees, but these flowers have all come up. A grand combination of colours.
