Here on Wenlock Edge it seems as if we’ve gone from winter to summer with not much spring in between. These last ten days have been warm and sun-filled, a great a time for encouraging squash and French bean seeds to sprout and planting out sweet corn. Of course along with heat and sun come worries about watering newly planted crops: the water butts were growing perilously low, and then quite unexpectedly (because it wasn’t intelligibly forecast except by the Norwegian weather site YR Weather) came a couple of nights of gently soaking summer rain. The barley in the field over the fence shot up another six inches and the home borders turned into jungles. Out in the guerrilla garden the invading Queen Anne’s Lace was bowed down with raindrops. I can’t think when I have seen anything quite so pretty. Who needs diamonds.
Life in Colour: white/silver This month at Travel Words Jude asks for white and silver sightings.

Stunning image Tish!
Thank you, kind sir!
What a glorious sight! A real jewel, Tish! Or several 🙂 🙂
I was entranced, Jo. Every bowed flower head was similarly bejewelled.
Guerrilla garden! I love this term. 🙂 And the photo too.
Thank you, Manja 🙂
Now that’s the kind of white and silver I love to see. Beautiful photo Tish.
I thought you’d like this one, Jude.
I LOVE those water jewels, Tish….never seen anything quite like it!
I’d never seen anything like it either, Sue.
That’s so pretty – a little jewel on every downward point 🙂
And they stayed there so nicely to have their photos taken 🙂
You do well with this shot. Really pretty.
I like that, James. Perfect.
Those are pure magic, Tish! An amazing capture.
We have interesting clouds along the Edge, Izzy 🙂
So beautiful that it looks like precious jewels!
PS I am happy though for the rain now to stop. We had 24hrs of persistent heavy rain – perfect for garden but now it is time for the blue skies to return!
