1926/4th April 2022 Expectations of soggy weather, this week, only materialized this morning, with a howling wind to drive rain into windows. The cat walk was seriously abbreviated, in consequence. All winter, the house was warm, but this time of year is always a trial with temperatures rising and falling capriciously. It has been a … Continue reading Finding balance
18th July 2021 It rained a lot in the night again, but we are not quite as submerged as this picture maybe suggests! Raindrops always fascinate me and this is simply rainwater caught in a spiderweb. Spiderwebs are neat too, of course. My camera finds pictures in the simplest things. These are grasses blowing in … Continue reading Surprises
0743/11th July 2021 There is a name for this , but I can't find it because I don't know how to describe it to Google. Refraction of light.

Captivated by the downpour, unbelievably, I didn't notice the very wet deer down below! But then..... As so often happens, the … Continue reading Nature paints
A moody sky entertained us yesterday as we drove to Glens Falls Here's my situation. It will not do. But I don't know how to fix it. Forget getting help from Facebook. YouTube can often help, but not this time. So let me tell you what's up. It's been some time now, that I've ignored … Continue reading Creepy
After the early frosts and cold, clear days, stormy skies are back, bringing a return to milder weather. The resultant colours are proof of how much difference climate makes. Part of my daily routine takes me outside after breakfast and often I come back in to grab my camera, as I did today. While there … Continue reading Layers
Asiatic Lilies Oh joy, unconfined! What a delight to be wakened by the sound of falling rain. I had to raise a curtain to check, as no rain had been forecast and it seemed too good to be true. But it was. Actual raindrops on my flowers. Interestingly, the wildlife responded by apparently staying late … Continue reading Nature’s day off
