raindrops on roses

Last week the heat really got to me. I just ground to a halt, gave in and decided it didn’t really matter if my Etsy shop didn’t open until this week. Last night was the hottest, stickiest night of all. I couldn’t sleep and soon after 03.00 was up and watching the lightning as it flashed and flickered for well over an hour. Then just after dawn it finally rained; that sort of violent rain that looks like steel rods in its determination to reach the ground. The heaviness lifted and cool air began to waft in…bliss.

raindrops on the yellow flowering shrub whose name I always forget

rose petals

wondrous raindrops

apple crumble yet to be

raindrops on the alchemilla mollis

Now I feel able to get on and finish photographing bags…

    What a relief! I do hope that the temperature stays at a more comfortable level – and look forward to seeing those bags!
