Over the garden fence this afternoon. And yes, after weeks of drought, we’ve had some rain, though the showers have not been as generous as these clouds seem to promise. I watched them roll out across Townsend Meadow towards Wenlock Edge. A cloud serpent, or a Chinese dragon in many shades of grey. There were pigeons flying every which way and some horizontal lightning.
Nothing like a spot of wild weather to stir the spirits.

I hope you got rain and it wasn’t a dry storm. Beautiful cloud captures.
It arrived in Leicester around 4pm
Cross-country rain then.
Ah, we had our firs bit of wild last night at 10.00 p.m. Thunder, but also thundering rain, the sort that sounds like a band of drummers. Not long lasting, but a start … I love your header photo.
Good to hear you had some useful rain. I think ours has faded for the time being.
Maybe back today! We have enough and to spare this morning. I was out in it …
Yep, the band of drummers has just started here…
And I was out in Round Two this morning 😦
So you said! Sad news about our lat monarch
Indeed. But unsurprising at her great age.
‘First’, not ‘firs’ …
Same here Tish, lot’s of promise little rain, just enough to settle the dust.
One good thing here, it’s stirred the runner beans back into action. They’d been useless so far.
And it is storming here …right now.
The rain has suddenly started hammering down here….
Horizontal lightning! That’ll get your attention, eh?
It hasn’t rained here for a couple of weeks. When it does, the Tarantulas come out.
Oh no! Not the tarantulas!
Hope you’re getting some of the same rain we have here in London? Finally we’re being reminded that grass is green not brown 😀
It’s amazing how quickly grass recovers.
Great photos. Excellent.
Thank you, John.

This was stunning. An approaching storm is always exciting, and you captured it well.
Many thanks, Jennie. It was a stirring moment 🙂
Indeed! You’re welcome.
