Looking for a change of colour from dry, brown countryside, I took a short stroll around the front garden, camera in hand.
Limonium (Sea Lavender)
Smoke Bush doing its 'reaching for the sky' act.
This is what happens when you don't prop up overladen fruit tree branches - they crash to the ground. Fortunately, this one (centre) is still attached to the tree so hopefully the nectarines will ripen in due course and then we'll remove the branch.
