Went down to Portland near Weymouth the weekend before last to go camping and climbing and generally be outdoors-y. Here, our encampment! Where we went climbing on Saturday: Nice sunset sky in the evening.

Where does wheat come from? Today doof.me.uk can exclusively reveal that it grows on plants! Wheats have ears – they’re listening to you!!
I really liked how this old gate looked when I was out walking this afternoon.
Very very hungry caterpillars. Saw these ones having some sort of conference on a plant between Henley and Greys Court this afternoon. Also a bee, a fly, and an unidentified red insectoid.
