10/09/2017 Rain drops in the garden.
Maximum temperature 19C, minimum 9C. 17 km/h NW wind with 39 km/h gusts. 6mm of rain overnight. More rain forecast over the rest of the week.
Autumn crocus/daffodils all closed - they do not like the weather!
Rain drops on the fir.
A single rain drop on the willow reflecting the garden upside down.
Raindrops on roses........
and on the sedum.
The wet weather is bringing out the snails. European garden snail (Helix aspersa)....
They are edible but I prefer to let the blackbirds eat ours!!
Two sparrows taking a bath
and turning their backs on me!!
The quinces are ripening, also apples and the first figs. You can see how big the quinces are compared to the Granny Smiths.
If you are interested Part 3 of our holiday in South Africa is up and running on my other blog.
