Mixed weather

This week the weather has altered daily, wind and rain was followed by a still day of heavy mist that hung in the trees reducing visibility to no further than the orchard. Then, yesterday, some sunshine, transforming everything. What a pleasure.

Most of the summer crops are over now, just a few courgettes and mangetout to gather.
The climbing French beans have set seed and I've left them hanging on the canes to dry. 
(Ever the optimist, but if the weather continues to be erratic I'll harvest them and spread them out in the house to dry.)
Himself got out the ladder to pick the last of the pears.

This orchid has been flowering for MONTHS!
Rain and strong winds again today.


  1. The flowers are beautiful, what are they? How impressive that you got so many lovely pears!!!

    1. Every spring the pear trees are full of blossomed I am full of hope. Then the pear midge gets in and all the developing fruit drops off. I garden organically and haven't been able to solve the problem. However this year is apparently my bonus year and the fruit ripened - hurrah!
