This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Fresh
As I said in my last post for this challenge this week we have been experiencing the third week of a wonderful heatwave and nobody is complaining as we have had enough of wet cold summers.
In the last few days some thundery showers have arrived, lots of lightning, heavy downpours, humidity. Again we are not used to this, but our gardens are very glad of the rain!
We have a Catalpa tree in our garden which has beautiful big pale leaves which we tend to sit under when the sun gets too hot (even for mad dogs and Englishmen) Last night we had a lot of rain, and today it’s beautiful orchid-like flowers have come into full bloom
I only wish I could smell them!
The other flowers that I love that are in flower at the moment are my red flowers (whose name has completely gone from my brain for the moment! Please help!!) and our anemone flowers
Here are some more of my photos of the flowers this morning, click on any of them to see a larger version
