Not a bad weekend after all…Forecaster were full of a mixture of doom and excitement that rain was on the way. So much bad weather that they named it Storm Debby. Not sure that Debby reaped havoc anywhere but we did get some rain.
Saturday was just great, sunny, blue skies and a little cooler, but just as nice both in the garden and the woods…
Fungi are starting to make there autumnal appearance. Bracket Fungi is perhaps to be expected on this ancient Oak, still standing upright and strong despite insects and fungi attacking its trunk…for a tree over 1000 years old that aint bad!
Sunday arrived and so did the rain, but to be frank it was more an irritant than a nuisance. Still no doubt the plants would be grateful for the splash they were able to capture…
The heatwave may be over but the patio and drive are still holding some of that heat, the rain just evaporated as soon as it fell.
Being realistic we do need some meaningful rain….forecasters say we have a wet week ahead…we will see
