The guest picture from Tony shows the clouds over the Forth that make his post-dog-walking welly rack, which was featured yesterday, a necessity.
I had an untypical day today as it was almost all given over to useful and necessary activity which didn’t involve walking, cycling or taking pictures. We spent most of the day in Carlisle doing stuff and when we got home, it was raining. I took a couple of shots in the garden just to have something to show for this post…
The pond was doing reverse leaking and filling up with the rain…
…which was falling on goldfinches in the fake tree..
…and (less heavily) on goldfinches on the sunflower stalk.
I filled up the seed feeder and it immediately became quite busy…
…and soon became very busy.
Then I had to settle down to phoning people to try to make sure that my bank account fraud wasn’t rippling any wider and for the moment at least, things are quiet and the bank is doing its best to keep them that way. Fingers crossed.
In the evening, I went out for a practice with Langholm Sings which was hard work and not as rewarding as I had hoped.
As a result of the day, I am feeling rather tired and can only apologise to those who hope for a smile and a ray of sunshine when they visit the blog.
The flying chaffinch of the day in the rain rounds the post off.
