A day late due to rain yesterday afternoon when I was about to take the photographs but I’m sure Cathy at Words and Herbs won’t mind.
When I wrote my post for IaVoM there was a terrific storm, enough water fell in a very short time to fill the hollows around the evergreens planted last year, even when I use a hose it is difficult for them to be filled in such a short time; but the storm passed and from 10 am on it was a sunny if slightly chilly day.
Yesterday was overcast with rain threatening most of the day and there was heavy rain during the afternoon; today is sunny with a mostly blue sky but there is now a definite chill, there can be no pretence that autumn hasn’t arrived.
The light was bright and harsh; my mother used to say that it would rain when the light was like this (she was often correct, but it isn’t forecast for today)
This is right under my feet when taking the Tuesday view so just out of shot.
In the middle distance in the ‘view’ the Arbutus is beginning to flower and its fruits are ready.
In the background, in the Upper Drive Border the crab apples are changing colour.
Do visit Cathy to see others contributions or join in, it is a great way to carefully follow what happens in one part of the garden.
