We've been very distracted this month. The decking has been replaced behind the house and geese and swans have nested. Checking back, it turns out I only took one of my standard lake view photographs.
This was taken around 08:15 on 23 May, a week later than the most comparable photo from last year
and, as always at this time of year, the interest is in the lily growth.
In this picture they seem somewhat less developed than they did in the later image from last year. So perhaps the minor work done to attempt to reduce the lilies has had some benefit.
