… in the rain
I seriously considered putting on wellies just to walk round to the orchard to let out Mylie and Francine. Seen here in sunnier days at Easter
Francine on the right and Mylie on the left.
The rain seems to be endless and I wonder if I will ever sit outside with a book and enjoy the garden. But let’s be honest, the long, hot summer of 2018 was an aberration and this is a more traditional English summer. So here are some pictures of the beauty of an English country garden in its more usual “habitat” … the rain.
The flagstones under the garden table, where we will not be eating supper tonight.
Rosa rugosa holding up against the rain, not so delicate after all!
Leaf sailing on across the overflowing water butt.
Snail hiding in the fallen rose petals.
Bounty in the garden. Woad, fennel, motherwort, mugwort, artichoke (globe and Jerusalem), runner beans, peas, yarrow.
It may be wet, but it’s still beautiful.
