It rained last night, violently and unexpectedly. My laundry was out on the line. Normally I would have run out to bring it in, because, well and here’s the thing, some part of me would feel it was slovenly to leave it there, but as my son pointed out, it was already thoroughly wet, so what was the point? So I did leave it. I had just told the kids ( I can call them that even if they are mostly grown) we would run to the store, I wanted to wait until the rain stopped, but again my son was being particularly wise and pointed out it wouldn’t be raining IN the store, and he offered to drive, so we got soaked running out to the driveway, and drove joyfully to the store where we got soaked again running in! By the time we came out the rain had stopped altogether, but it was fun, running in the rain with them, I was glad I let them talk me into it. Sometimes I can be such a mum (boring!). When I got home I just couldn’t settle down to anything. The last few days I have diligently gone to the studio, but everything I have touched has imploded somehow, glue in the wrong place, a paper upside down, thread in a knotty tangle. So I decided to deadhead my flowers and take some pictures of my lush green garden. So no art today except from nature, I hope you enjoy a quick glimpse of my garden world, ignore the weeds, I do!
