Can’t Go Wrong With Raindrops

Captured on the wet morning of a recent coach trip, you just can’t go wrong with raindrops on flowers, can you?

What’s Eating Our Clematis?

Some tiny creature obviously took a fancy to this clematis bud before it got the chance to flower.

Mediterranean Spurge

This is a close-up view of the intricate flower of a Mediterranean Spurge, a plant I had never seen – or even heard of – before, but which is growing strongly in my son’s garden.

To give an idea of scale, the green ovoid disc of which the flower is at the heart is no more than a centimetre (about a third of an inch) in diameter.

Tree Rings

This log from my stash for the wood-burning stove had an intriguing pattern of rings if you looked at it closely enough.

Sprouting garlic

Although it doesn’t usually get the chance, this time some of our garlic has ‘gone over’. We’ll plant it out and see what happens…

Rhubarb, Rhubarb

What’s the problem? Never seen rhubarb before?

Fresh Cabbage

Who knew? Even cabbages can be interesting when you get up close to them – especially when they are as good and fresh as these, seen on a stall at the excellent Saturday market in Perigueux.

Swatters

A close-up look at a small sample of our collection of colourful fly swatters. Hopefully, the fly gets an even closer view – although they usually get away.
