07/11/2016 Back home after a busy weekend.

Maximum temperature 11C, minimum 0C.  36 km/h NW wind.  Altogether we have had 30mm of rain over the weekend.  
Sorry  I did a post on Friday to say we would be away, I forgot to post it and stayed in draft!! It only went on line today!!  
Back home again though now with our first frost this morning! 
Last ticket in the raffle on Friday and look what Nigel won :-)

Saturday in the Dordogne celebrating a  friends 70th

Sunday driving home in the mist...

Monday back home and the Ginkgo biloba in autumn dress

Mushrooms everywhere but they do not look edible!

And last but not least a Great Tit.

  2. There is something special about being out and about in the mist - a special secretive sense! Lovely lovely photos!

    1. Linda we so needed the rain, we have been dry since June and even older plants were starting to look like they might give up. Luckily it was fairly steady rain and not a huge storm. Hopefully all will pick up again though a fewof our new hedging plants I think have gone. Stay well Diane

  4. Good, finally it rained after so many months. The mist looks dreamy but it is not safe driving in it. I have also seen mushrooms growing in the park during this rainy season.
