Storm Clouds Gathering

 Our visit to the garden today was punctuated by thunder and lightening and torrential rain. Just before the deluge I had time to take some photos in stunning light and chat to returning yurters.

The chicks were sheltering under the mother hen but we could only see the white one.
We set up a new sign to point people towards the tortoises.... so many people miss them.
Then we sheltered in the polytunnel for a welcome cuppa, listening to the rain drumming on the plastic with occasional claps of thunder and flashes of lightening. All very dramatic.

As soon as there was a break in the downpour, we made a run for it, squelching through the gate to the car.

It gave me a good excuse to put on my dressing gown early.



  1. So exciting! I do love it when the sky goes that colour and all the colours look so stunning.
    The pond is looking great and I love the tortoise sign

  2. I found that sign in the cobshed when I tidied up. In its previous life it was a turtle adorning the mermaids bathtub.
