At last sunshine is here and sunflowers are here.
If you are in Dorchester then why not visit the Maiden Castle Sunflower Trail. Details and booking can be done through their web site.
The Sunflower Trail is in full flower and will be open daily until they start to wilt in two or three weeks. It opens daily at 12.00pm and the last booking time is 6.00pm. Bookings are recommended though not essential. maidencastlefarm.co.uk Drinks/snacks are available or there is plenty of room for people to bring their own picnic.
Having spent a pleasant afternoon there today it was good to see how many honey bees were there. There are also many bumble bees and I saw at least three different species.
