Last week, on a very rainy day before it got so warm and when it was impossible to either go for a walk or sit in the garden, we decided to tackle a job that has wanted doing for ages. It didn't take as long as I thought it might, especially with a lunch break in between sessions. It was so satisfying when it was completed.
All the books were then dusted and put back in place on the shelves.
There are berries on the Juniper tree, I expect the birds will find them soon.
Meanwhile over the last couple of nights we have set up the wildlife camera to watch for garden visitors. It's amazing on the actual films how many moths, beetles and craneflies are flitting about whilst owls hoot in the background, but of course the main attraction is the foxes and badgers.
I've noticed how the light is fading earlier. Last week it was still fairly light at nearly 10p.m. Last night it was almost dark around 9.30p.m.
As I type this the rain is pouring down whilst the sun is still shinning. A short sharp shower which has stopped in the length of time it has taken me to write this sentence.
