A few more images from our walk around Selborne. That blue smudge in the second picture is some type of blue butterfly honest!
I am given to understand that this is a Knight's Templar gravestone.
St Francis feeding the birds.
Roundels from the Gilbert White memorial window. I don't know if it's just me,but some of those creatures look decidedly malevolent with those rather cold staring eyes! Think I prefer the leaves myself!
The Selborne Yew was struck by lightning in 1990 and this is all that remains of this venerable tree. Thankfully a cutting was taken and the original lives on in the sapling.
Always love a weather vane, but an interesting comment left by Thelma yesterday about Gilbert White believing that they hibernated under water [a common misconception of the time] has left me wondering if this is why this one with swallows was chosen.
