Not so long ago we watched through the window as the fences fell over in a storm, one by one, like a pack of cards, all round the property. The high winds today have been pretty much the same, whistling and crashing all day. The fences (restored) are holding up, but it has been a day for tying down the dustbins… and checking other things….
on this slanting roof.
Catkins. horizontal in the wind. hang on
Iris. buds. still looking strong.
One bird. fluffed. hidden. nearly
Two flying things. sailing. having fun
Yellow fields. powdering.the air
Hedges. clipped. behaving…Ah!
The cherry blossom…
petals like snow
Counting each one. ~ Gill McGrath © May5
