When I am under the weather it is always a bad headache that does me in. So it was yesterday, but, I am happy to say, this had desisted after a good night’s sleep and, although I remained a bit dizzy I enjoyed wandering around the garden this morning with a camera. I think I understand the expression ‘under the weather’ because I do seem to have headaches when there is that change in pressure that comes with impending storms. And yesterday it rained steadily all afternoon.
This made for plants adorned with translucent pearly precipitations. Geraniums were well represented;
leaves, such as those of gladioli
and poppies, bore crystal balls;
black eyed Susan sparkled;
blushing begonias shimmered in shadows;
strange creatures, food dangling from their maws, lurked behind day lilies;
roses Lady Emma Hamilton,
and Special Anniversary were all bejewelled.
Bees, like this one in the Peach Abundance rose, were venturing out again.
This afternoon I watched the Wimbledon men’s quarter finals of tennis on TV.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s wonderful boeuf bourguignon, followed by vanilla ice-cream.
