Yesterday's downpours kept me close to home for most of the day. I couldn't get inspired to get outdoors much. I made a trip to Kayaks North West to get some spare bits and pieces before settling down to watch an afternoon movie.
Later in the day the rain broke up into showers with a few sunny intervals. The change in the weather was echoed in the garden. Bird song was at a frantic dawn chorus level and not surprisingly there were slugs and snails everywhere.
The still evening air was filled with refreshed scent from the early blooms of summer. I have to keep in mind that the place that I live in is beautiful as well as those special places that I have visited, and hope to explore.
