29/06/2017 A wet garden and quite chilly after the temperatures we have been having.

Maximum temperature 17C  minimum 12C.  31 km/h SW winds 52 km/h gusts. 11 mm rain measured this morning and it has been raining on and off all day.
Went to Chasseneuil this morning. I shopped while Nigel had a physio appointment for his shoulder.
I have never seen the car park to busy especially while it was raining!!!

Yesterday's rose bud today.

Calendula...

as above.

The last of the day lilies.

Young leaves on the grape vine.

Hibiscus.

Buds on the Stargazer Lily.

Blackbird. Think this is a youngster.

Ladybird....

and my reflection on its back :-)

Wasp - in hiding I think!

Today's veggie crop, we are soon going to have lots!!!

  4. It's pouring here too.I have to go out and band Barn Swallows so it's a good thing they are in fact in a barn!

    1. Hope you kept dry, presumably this is the barn where they also have the horses. Enjoy your weekend Diane

    1. You are so right, either it is in the 40's or in the mid 20's. The rain is good, but I hate cold winds which is what we are having at the moment!! Hope you are no feeling 100% again. Diane

  6. Beautiful photos of the rain droplets. We could certainly do with some of that ourselves, rather than just frosts.

    1. We are short on rain this year and there are restrictions in some places. This rain will certainly cheer up the garden but it is not enough to fill all the dams. Diane
