A walk on the Millom tidal embankment is enjoyable on a gloriously hot summer's day. Only a zephyr of a wind rustled the grass. A contrast to the last time we walked this way when a cooling wind howled across the estuary.
As we turned to return through the lanes there was a large clump of what I think are Himalayan Balsam, or Poor Man's Orchid, under the trees. These were the only two in flower, the rest looked as though they were waiting for July.
