Two days with stormy downpours and high humidity has knocked the ‘stuffing’ out of me. Well not the downpours as such, but the sleepless tropical nights.
There has not been much that I can do up the allotment these past couple of days – the inevitable weeding of course, but in high temperatures not a lot of that got done.
The chooks are getting a bit shook up with all the electrical storms and thunderclaps, and some of the crops look like they have suffered a bit.
I hope it is will be a blessing too, and prevent some of the many field and hedgerow fires across our area. The air has been filled with more fire engine and police sirens that I have ever heard.
I feel at a loss without a camera in my pocket, and have missed so many photo opportunities too. Hopefully soon that will be rectified!
On the coast yesterday and today, there has been the annual Air Displays – and we get to see some of the aircraft flying over.
It was great yesterday afternoon when some really old RAF helicopters flew over our village in perfect formation – off back to an air museum or base by the look of things.
We get to see quite a number of such craft flying overhead as I have mentioned before – but the majority of which are modern ones – and helicopters are usually flying singly – so see a formation of them was a real and almost like watching an old black and white film!
I am just off to my floral design workshop so this is a short and hurried post - but I will make up for it over the weekend hopefully
