After weeks and weeks of beautiful sunshine during the lockdown, the weather has turned. The sun is hiding behind the clouds and the much-needed rain has come (I just hope it doesn’t hang around for too long!).
Yesterday, after a downpour, I decided to head outside to capture some of the raindrops…
The beautiful rambling roses hang over the fence from next door’s garden, whereas my rose hasn’t flowered yet.
I love the way raindrops form on hosta leaves. It’s almost as if the leaves themselves haven’t got wet.
Osteospermums are amongst my favourite flowers and these are such a beautiful colour.
I picked up a tray of these marigolds at a nearby roadside plant sale in aid of the National Garden Scheme last month (money raised goes to nursing and healthcare charities) and I’m really pleased with how they’ve come out. Stunning colours!
These daisies are great and their heads seem to follow the sun.
These marigolds love the sun too. They open as the sun gets higher in the sky and close if it clouds over.
There are foxgloves of various colours around the garden and I’m not entirely sure where they all came from!
And who should I find on the leaf of a daisy but this little critter – a 2-spot ladybird.
