Not long ago I was caught in a thunder storm, while at work in the garden. It may sound strange, but this is the second time it happened, and I loved every bit of it! The thick clouds coming in, the stillness in the air, the sudden gusts of wind and the torrential rain. Off course, my garden house gives perfect shelter. I think I would not have loved it as much otherwise :-)!
I lit the candles, made a cup of coffee and watched the spectacle. Afterwards I went into the garden to smell the wet earth and grass and take some photo's. It looked magnificent!
The Dahlia's are really pretty at the moment and I still have roses, like rose Falstaff on the 2nd photo, rose William Shakespeare on the fifth and rose Belinda on the sixth photo. My Sweet Peas are still giving huge amounts of flowers. It took my daughter and I half an our recently, to pick them all :-) Such joy!
The cucumbers and tomatoes I planted in the greenhouse, were a bit of a dissapointment this year. Although I harvested about six cucumbers and a few tomatoes, it could have been better, but......well, you can't have it all!!
Happy new week!
