It would be really nice to enjoy a sunny day with no rain at all.
The only two weeks of the year when I could become a couch potato.
365-148 Storm Approaching.
Five minutes later we had torrential rain, thunder & lightening.
365-147 A Yorkshire Rose
White of course!
365-146 Coffee Break
365-144 Clematis 2
Having picked the clematis yesterday I wasn't going to waste it so I decided to scan it and make it 'arty'. Besides which it is pouring with rain again!
A bit of a disastrous day yesterday so no picture of the day.
Brought these indoors as it is so windy in the garden.
365-142 Wet, Wet, Wet
I had hoped to have a stunning picture of the limestone pavement at Malham for today. We were booked on a trip with the Natural History Group of the U3A so having paid for it and for lunch we went. It poured with rain almost the whole time we were there, so much so that the camera stayed in the dry once I had taken this picture. We did manage to walk around the raised bog on the boardwalk and see some interesting plants but there was no way we could walk on the limestone pavement as it would have been treacherous.

Even though she was hosting the birthday party Jane still had to feed the chickens. Love the wellies with the party dress.
365-136 Cross Keys
Another hotel, another bed. Had to nip up to Scotland to help celebrate my brother-in-law's 80th birthday.
365-135 Peacock Feather
We are so used to seeing squashed tin cans on the road so it was a surprise to come across this peacock feather. Especially as there are no peacocks in the area as far as I know.
365-134 The Lunch Queue
It seems than none of the kids have lunch in school these days. If you want to go shopping don't in our small town don't do it between 12 noon and 1pm in term time!
365-133 Breezy Knees Garden
We went to the aptly named Breezy Knees Garden today. It has been flooded during the past few days and was still very soggy. The flowers are about 10 days behind their normal flowering time but the poppies were still beautiful.
I knew it would happen once we were home again. I almost forgot to take a picture today.
365-131 The New Ziggurat
We missed the jubilee celebrations. The new ziggurat made to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is looking splendid.
365-130 Green and Pleasant
After almost three weeks away the garden is looking very lush. Must be all that rain!

Don't even think about the unpacking and laundry, just make a nice cup of tea!

Winthrop is a lovely old town in Washington State, USA. The whole town's buildings look like this but unfortunately there are lots of modern cars parked along the street.
