  • At this time of year the verges are carpeted in flowers, late afternoon on the edge of Marshwood Vale
  • Trees fill out with leaves and rapid growth everywhere swallows up the village buildings once more, approaching Hilton
  • A typical bright May day, approaching the market place in Blandford Forum
  • Cow parsley edges the lanes with white and everywhere the vegetation is luxuriant, on a lane leading to Melcombe Bingham
  • Feeding on the new grass, grazing cows on Fontmell Down, Melbury Hill in the distance
