Does anyone know what this weed (?) is growing in my front lawn? it is the only part of the lawn that is actually green!
It is starting to cover quite a large patch of lawn.
These are the flowers
Blue sky! The solar panels have been working hard the last few days.
The gunnera is looking better now I have trimmed off the dead leaves and given it a good water. I also spotted at least five goldfish in the pond today, so they are still there! They weren't visible for long though.
Spider with some prey.
The pears are starting to look good, need to get a bit bigger yet though, they aren't as 'big' as they look in these two photos.
I picked this apple!
I now know what the circular 'clumps' in the orchard are...they are cyclamen...whatdoyacallits.
I think this is brussels? I need to check my planting notes.
On my walk...
Down at the beach, gorgeous.
I went for a paddle and wished I'd had my swimsuit and a towel as it was so hot down there.
Actually it has been so hot all day, another scorcher for sure.
Just so beautiful.
A bit of excitement to watch on my walk home... a helicopter hovering
a boat speeding a long
Helicopter getting closer. I thought it was a police helicopter, but when I uploaded the photos I saw...
...it was a coastguard helicopter.
It seemed to 'chase' after the boat
and then hover over the top of it for a very long time. But they are both coastguard vessels, so thinking perhaps they were doing some kind of training exercise.
Pretty as a butterfly in the sun.
Dry fields with an 'anvil cloud' (cumulonimbus incus) in the distance...I wonder if thunder is coming? It is forecast to.
Still cruising along...
Not a particular active day apart from my walk, but better than yesterday. The heat was just way too much for me yesterday and I ended up with a bad migraine and stomach discomfort. Fortunately it didn't last too long, the tablets did the trick.
