Today, as I write, the rain is a persistent heavy drizzle, and the outdoor temperature about 16 C. Yesterday was a lovely 31 C. The 36 hours earlier produced an inch of rain (25mm).
Before it all began, we had a glorious sunset.The next day, I had to put a raincoat on to take the dog for her walk.Constant bubbles rose to the surface of the puddles, as air in the soil was displaced.But the ants knew more was to come … I’ve never seen nest ramparts built so high. The pine cone was already there, it wasn’t a prop.The wet brought the snails out … nearly stepped on this pair.Vika loved her walk, as usual, no matter the weather. She would love to get a closer look at the honey stall across the road on the weekends. Honey mainly, but eggs, tomatoes and horse manure too.All photos taken with the Nokia phone camera, on auto.
