Then there was the rain…


It has been a while since I posted here. I’m pretty sure that time does not run at a constant rate and is sensitive to diverse things such as temperature, happiness and percentage of blood in your alcohol (or vice versa).

Here in the UK we have officially had a heatwave, being 5 consecutive days of temperatures in excess of 5ยฐC of the average for that day. Certainly one day was very hot for us, causing our dogs to almost melt. Good job they’re not chocolate*!

For inspiration, I walked around my writing office at Denmark Farm the other day, shortly after cooling rain had made it seem more like a normal British summer. The rain drops on the leaves and petals were too magnificent to ignore. So here they are…




  • If they were, I probably would have eaten them by now anyway…

    Love your definition of a heatwave! And glad to know that every minute in the office is spent typing. Oh and the photos are great too.

  3. Rain drops are too precious to ignore (we need some Winter rain here), and your photos are lovely. Glad the dogs are safe and sound!

    • Thanks! Dogs are much happier now the air is cooler. And you re right, rain drops are the stuff of life no matter who and where you are. Once out water butts are full, I’ll try blowing the rest of the rain your way! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Wonderful pics of the raindrops, and I know we really needed that rain, but I could have done without the cold winds that seems to have come with it :/
    I’m glad your dogs aren’t chocolate – they’re far too lovely to be eaten, bless them ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, there was something very photogenic about the purple flower and the few droplets on its skin. I’m glad the dogs aren’t choccy too – the temptation not to have a cube or three would be overwhelming! ๐Ÿ™‚
