I got up around 4:30 am and the rain was coming down in torrents. I figured every tall plant in the garden would be flattened but as luck would have it after the rain they were all standing up straight. It's a wee bit chilly today, only +8 C when I got up but thankfully it's around +14 C at the moment. Himself arrives home in two days from Spain where the temps. have been in the 40's so he's in for quite a shock as we're suppose to have cooler temperatures for the next couple of days. I've been doing very little lately. I seem to have gotten lazy all of a sudden and am just basically lazing around. Oh I've stuck a few plants in the ground that a friend gave me, cleaned the chicken house, baked some sweets, general house work, but not done anything that takes a lot of labour.
There have been few birds around. The Hummingbird Hawk moth has been here for a few days. Not hanging around for long though. Seems to be just checking in then flying off. There's been a crow hanging around always waiting for me to put some leftovers on the platform feeder.
The poppies have been blooming this week. They don't last very long but a beautiful sight never the less.
