My plans for today have been shot down by rain; I was hoping to get back to the garden and split some shrubs and perennials that had made giant strides during the summer heat and rain. However, since I'm confined to the house I shall talk about yesterday. Not that yesterday was particularly significant unless it was someone's birthday or the anniversary of something special. No, it was just a Tuesday, but a very pleasant one here, one of those fresh autumn days with a piercing blue sky. So I went for a walk with my camera.
Can anyone identify these berries?
O.K. I know these are our own grapes. They taste very sour on the outside but sweet inside.
The remains of my vegetable garden, reminiscent of J.E.H. MacDonald's painting THE TANGLED GARDEN.
And again, with asters.
Along the road...a wooley-bear caterpillar, signifying a cold winter by the looks of it.
Note the bird sunning itself.
Horses and cows in the shade.
And back at home the goldfish are still active. Soon they will slow down, stop eating and lie low till the spring. The frogs have already departed. Sigh!
So there you are, yesterday.
Today I'm continuing to work on a new series of watercolours. When they're finished I shall post them.
