Monday 16 May 2011: Hanging gardens
It was an unremittingly grey, wet and windy day today. Our weather seems to get stuck in long-lasting phases. April was uncharacteristically warm, dry and bright. May has been overcast, cool and breezy.
So definitely not a good day for outdoor photography, in the gaps between the windblows I experimented trying to get a water droplet shot in the garden. This double drop was on a foxglove flower that is just starting to open. The Clematis montana that is flowering on the wall behind is distinctly visible in the drops.
Everyone is so nice on Blip. After the brutal murder of the Boss blackbird, everyone was so forgiving of the culprit Bob the Cat. It seems it definitely was the Boss, she has not appeared today. The saving grace is that I'm sure she didn't have little ones to feed, as last week she was still gathering nest material. We are making sure now that Bob has no incentive to go hunting, not good news for his waist line.
Worth a look under the lens.
