Yesterday the rain came out of the heavens in sheets with wind as well. It was damp and cool so lit the fire and started back at the fall cleaning that I've been doing all week. Body is aching a bit at the moment what with moving furniture, hauling boxes that have been stored for ages to go through and see what's there, washing curtains, ceilings and some of the walls. I'm going to sit back with a book shortly and take a well deserved rest.
Today the sun is shining, a bit of a soft breeze. I decided after lunch to go out with the camera to have a look around. Still a good many bees about, saw a dragonfly and it landed, managed to get two pictures taken before it flew away, ran in the house full of excitement, took them off.....both blurry...sigh! I don't say they will be around much longer as the days are getting colder so thought this was probably my last chance to get a picture.
I expect in the next few days I'll have to start moving some of the plants to better spots. Several small weigela and some rose bushes. So much to do and so little time! I don't know where the weeks are going. It seems Monday comes and before I can turn around it's the weekend again.
Not a lot of birds around these days, jays, crows, and woodpeckers mostly. The occasional chick a dee and finch. A few of the pictures I took today.....
Bee on Teasel
Don't know what this is, looks like some kind of wasp.
