And then, towards the end of April, a funny thing happened. It rained. Outrageous! We’re just not used to that here in Sunny Silverdale.
Not that it rained much. And Woodwell pond, which had been in danger of drying out, needed it. As did all the other flora and fauna, no doubt.
Early purple orchid.
The orchids on the lots looked good after a wash and brush up.
Horseshoe vetch above the Cove.
Much as I’m enjoying the sunshine, everything is looking more than a bit scorched and we could do with some more of that rain. Preferably overnight! (Not that I’m greedy or anything).
