The morning started with what I, at first, thought was frost on the strawberry leaves. But then I realised if wasn’t quite cold enough. It’s just dew. Fine dew.
By the middle of the afternoon the teasing storm clouds drifted by. Thunder a-plenty, but little action.
The clover will no doubt appreciate a little watering.
Swans swim on the Gara River at dusk. A family group by the trees at the river’s edge.
The edges of the thunder clouds are tinged by the last light of the sunset. The almost-rolling hills have greened up nicely after the recent rains. There’s no volume to the grass yet, but at least it looks the part - prettier than the crisp, brown, dead grass of seasons past.
