We had a big, loud thunderstorm last night. This meant that Mum and Dad had to hermetically seal themselves in their flat with all curtains closed and windows tightly shut. Pity because they missed a lightning performance with wonderful booming sound effects.
Ruby, out great dane, has never been bothered by storms until she started spending time with her grandparents on a regular basis. Now I have a huge soppy dog cowering as well. Learned behaviour? - I think so!
However, after the welcome 32 mls of rain last night Frank took this lovely photo of the water lily dam in today's cool and cloudy conditions. The soft light really does help show up colours.
