I worry that

Nothing will grow back in my garden after so much cold weather!

Sunshine! … All day

sunflower

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.


Fed Up!

raindrop

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.


Out of the Habit

sunflower

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.


A spot of rain

lily

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.


Later in the day …

rose-later

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!


Fog to-day.

Feel free to leave a comment saying what the ring collard dove is thinking.


No gale, but one fallen tree

camellia-bark

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.
