Clouds, sunshine and heavy showers
High winds too – so not a day for umbrellas.
The Canada Geese passed in small numbers. These looked as though they were heading for the canal.
The temperature blanket is now up to date to yesterday. Only one more square for this month.
Today, it seems, was mostly about the birds!
Early morning watcher
Midday inside visitor
And lonely collared dove who has lost his mate. He spent virtually the whole day just sitting on the fence.
It was also a day for finding unexpected pretties
And for almost finishing another blanket
The day began with drizzle – rain, but so light it was hardly visible.
The starlings were waiting for something.
Soon they were gone – leaving ‘official’ watchers
The first of the new flowers appeared on the Viburnum. It has rested for about 5 weeks and will continue flowering now for almost 12 months.
A lone purple flower shows that the wire is doing its job! A local cat was constantly digging up this plant! I think we’ve saved it.
We woke to blue skies and sun.
The gathering clouds soon changed the vista to grey, however.
We found colour elsewhere
Much excitement – we were out for a meal tonight.
So good to meet up with family. And this was our view…
