Half a day’s respite from rain

Following constant  downpours while I was responding to a challenge on facebook to post a nature picture every day for seven days,  and a severe gale last night, this morning dawned bright and calm.sunny sunday
Knowing that it couldn’t last, I set out after breakfast for my usual toddle round the village. I hoped to find early signs of violets, but had to make do with nettles in flower and some  triangular stripey leaves of I know not what.nettles 7.2.16 lush growth 7.2.16

I knew it couldn’t last, the sky is now all cloud, and more gales are expected soon.  I’m glad I made the most of the morning, and now I’m making bread while pondering the next stage of my current scrappy quilt project.scrappy hexagons en route7.2.16

  1. We had a beautiful but gusty day yesterday and torrential rain today.

    On the plus side, the dogs refuse to walk in the rain, which means I don’t have to, either 🙂

    It’s cuckoo pint, Arum maculatum, your stripey triangular leaves. You’ve obviously spent your rained-in time to excellent effect, because that scrappy piecing is coming along excellently!
