It was sunny in the south this morning but the weather gradually closed in as I made my way into the centre of the Lake District. It was still warm, however, and the walk along Loughrigg Terrace is always a pleasant one whatever the weather. There was an abundance of Foxgloves up there today though they are slowly but surely being overtaken by the ever advancing bracken.
