We have had some beautiful weather lately.
In fact we are warmer, drier and sunnier than the south of Spain. Not bad.
I went out the other evening and walked around the garden, just snapping off pictures in the evening light.
I’ve uploaded thumbnails, because small pictures don’t do them justice, so just click on ’em if you want the Bigger Picture.
And just to add a bit of colour – I’ll throw in a cactus. This is a rather unattractive plant. It’s all spikes and weird shapes, but every year it explodes into a riot of the most incredible flowers, each several inches across. Then it is a real beauty. It has only just begun its display and it is laden down with huge buds.
And just for the craic, I’ll put up a photograph I took last year of Sandy. She was minding her pal, the Collared Dove fledgeling. He is up to the left. They became firm pals, and even the parents didn’t mind Sandy being around.
