1 I discovered these delightful curly stems on the ground in the garden this morning. It looks as if there will be lots of Cyclamen Hederifolium flowers this year but I was expecting them to flower in the Autumn! Perhaps they think it is Autumn already. It is cool enough and there are spiders’ webs covered in rain drops all over the garden.
2 It may be cool out there but we have lots of our own lettuce leaves to eat – today a simple Italian salad of Pomodorinos, avocado and mozzarella with a balsamic dressing. I forgot the basil until after the photos!
3 The rain has beaten the poppies down and the wind has shaken off some petals sooner than hoped. They are still very beautiful and I love how the raindrops cling to the hairy stems.
