Rural living definitely brings its own challenges. Yesterday Paul went to read the water meter and was confronted by a wasps nest, there was a mouse in the laundry room and when I went upstairs I was greeted by a lizard lounging in the middle of my bedroom carpet.
After a cloudy start today the sun has come out and it is stiflingly hot. But there is a feeling in the garden that summer is nearly over. The Autumn crocuses are out and have been attracting a lot of bees today. The lavender bushes have been cut back and the pampas grass plumes have just started to emerge. Everything is constantly changing.
