While it is raining hard today, I did manage to take some good photos earlier this weekend and the garden is looking pretty:
Of course this week I was hardly home and also had very few flowers out. It has been a strange spring with large gaps between flowering. The bugle weed above is saying “mow the lawn”

Most of my pictures have minimal processing, so this was not a new idea for me. Harder than I expected though.

Or at least flowers still bloom in my garden:
I bought lots of ‘mums to cheer up the garden. The garden now has lots of color.
The rain-barrel was newly installed with new gutters in August. I now have three rain-barrels. However, until last week, we had hardly any rain to speak of, so they weren’t very functional. After Thursday’s rain, this one in the front, fell over and squashed the new gutter. Full rain-barrels are heavy. Sigh. The ground below the breeze-blocks obviously wasn’t as level as I had thought, despite what the spirit level said.
Yes, I ate the black raspberry right after taking this picture. Nom, nom.
