Sometimes I wonder if we realise how lucky we are to have such fabulous scenery right on our doorstep. These photographs were taken whilst walking around Middle Hope, near Sand Bay on the 5th September. I have a old university friend who lives near London and whenever he and his wife come to stay they always insist on doing this walk. He has told me that the views are some of the finest he has seen anywhere in the world - and he is very well travelled! Picture: Andrew Wilson - Credit: andrew wilson

I planted a couple of seeds from a small packet of sun flowers thinking they would grow to about 3ft back earlier in the year, but they have grown rather tall. One is now just short of twelve ft, they just coming out in flower, so i thought you might like to see them and does anybody else have some at this height. Picture: Jenny Coles - Credit: jenny coles
