Nothing will grow back in my garden after so much cold weather!
We have had such a poor July and August,
That we have not had three consecutive dry days
Which made to-day even more special
As it was warm and sunny
And the garden was full of bees and butterflies.
I am totally fed-up today ….
August is supposed to be a glorious month,
Golden sunshine, warm breeze and happy days
Not this year, “bring back summer” I say.
Visitors, a bug, and then filling up my hard drive,
Suddenly I realized that I had gotten out of the habit of a daily shot.
Time to get back into it again.
The wind blew the sunflowers over last night,
But this means they are at ground level …
And I could photograph them.
Another very hot and muggy day
But we did have a spot of rain this evening –
Well, perhaps 40 spots
Enough to freshen the air so that the scent of the lily
Graces the garden.
Downpours of rain all day to-day,
So this mornings rose, now looks like this.
Also I am still unsure if Blotanical is picking up my new feed.
So if anyone finds this via Blotanical could you let me know!
Feel free to leave a comment saying what the ring collard dove is thinking.
The gales passed us by, although we did have some high winds.
Unfortunately, our winter flowering camellia was a casualty
It was, I think quite old and had been looking sickly since we moved here.
Sad that it fell down – but it gives me a planting opportunity.
