"Whether the weather be wet, or whether the weather be fine, whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot, we'll weather the weather, whether we like it or not."
Well, in the UK we have had a very strange Autumn. This time last year our temperatures were about 30 degrees cooler than they are now! (And that's Celsius, not Fahrenheit.) We have had very little rain, and few of the usual Autumn gales. Yes, I know this is a generalisation, because some parts of the UK have had worse weather than others (Shaheen? Elaine?), but I'm writing about Fleet, which is about 35 miles South of London.
Having been away from home for a few days on business, I wanted a good look round the garden on Friday morning. It had rained during the night, and unusually, everything was dripping wet. I couldn't resist taking some "raindrop" photos...
There was a frost too, as evidenced by this complex pattern on the waterproof cover over the barbecue:
I keep thinking there's not much to photograph in the garden at present - but I think it's just that I need to look a bit closer than at some other times of the year.
