Day's eyes

Two beautiful daisies snapped on my walk up to the hayfield today. This one is a native, Robin's Plantain (Erigion pulchellus):

While this one is a European interloper, the Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare):

Up at the hayfield it was the usual story: impressive rain-bearing clouds forming to the north of us, while we bask in warm sunshine. Nice for holiday-makers but not so good for the farmers and vegetable growers in this area.

A bit hot for dogs, too:
