Summer Evening Near Otterton

A walk up the river, plenty of rain this Summer so all of the plants are looking healthy. Himalayan Balsam along the riverbank in many places so even more of it next year.

Devon in June and July

Plenty of rain here lately so everything is green and big although summers as grey as this one has been for a while now makes me think of other countries and possibilities.

I have been experimenting in a small way with solar power using the cheapest lights that I could find to see what the technology is like now at this affordable level and I find myself impressed with the results. Although the lights do vary a lot in brilliance from night to night they are perfectly good for hallways or other places that don't need too much light. In theory these lights could be used all over the place which makes me wonder why there is not more interest in setting these sorts of things up. It looks pretty easy really.
