Colours in the sky, our home & nature

We love a week of rain showers, and not just for the good it does the garden and wildlife but also because there’s always a chance of catching some rainbows. The last week has been spectacular although we didn’t both see the same ones at the same time, this picture is from Lucy’s cycle ride home on the 11th when just as the rain started to fall lightly this magnificent full archway appeared! Brian saw one like it at home the day before, and it’s been a week of colour in other ways too.

Oudscf5403r wooden windows needed maintenance, and dodging the showers Brian painted almost all of them. We like this green as it makes us think of an artists’ cottage. There’s still the insides to do.

While the window paint was drying, Brian was painting the kitchen floor! This was completed on Friday.

(And, because the kitchen floor had a coat of paint on Friday, that meant it was still a bit wet at teatime, which meant we couldn’t cook, which of course meant we had to have a Chinese takeaway from across the road! It was the first one we’ve had for many months so felt like a real treat.)

Colours in nature are changing for Autumn. This maple tree was well on the way to a red and gold transformation.

The Spindle has stunning pink berries and a blush on its leaves at the moment.

This time of year can be so beautiful and varied, from day to day and hour to hour things are changing and there is always something to notice and appreciate.
