There are Still Flashes of Colour

The weather this weekend has  been superb, although yesterday I was too tired to enjoy it much. Today I was still tired, but was able to enjoy a  two and a half hour walkabout around the river and the park, where it got so warm in the sun I had to take my jacket off.

Colder weather, we are assured, is on the way. So that's some frosty cycling commutes for me then.

I've noticed the last few days that there are still wildflowers blooming quietly in my little garden; red dead  nettle, feverfew and some small yellow flowers I can't identify.

Life persists.

Of the garden flowers still in flower, various types of fuschia seem to be the hardiest. Ewalina next door still has lots hanging from her shed, and the council ones across the park.

Tomorrow what shall I do? My heel feels a bit better with the inserts, but I still want to be more active.

  1. I read something today which talks about your feet being properly shod and massaged...on the foot. Doubt its on the NHS!

  2. I have a fuchsia which refused to flower all summer but finally woke up in late September and is still flowering now. As you say "life persists".

  3. Yes indeed. There is still a lot of colour to be seen.

  4. Tomorrow I'm going jogging in the local swimming pool. The resistance of the water provides strong but gentle exercise.

  5. Thanks all, might take a look at swimming again

  6. Lovely to see all the colour. We still have fuschias flowering in our garden.

  7. So nice to capture all the colour still around. I was thinking exactly the same - I've seen roses still blooming. I hope your heel improves.
