Stunning image.

You hoped for rain? You would have been welcome to the rain that has made this the wettest summer in 100 years over here! We are sick to death of rain.

Well Annette I would sooner be in your flower meadow than cutting next doors ten foot high hedge, and it looks like summer has gone as the leaves are going red yellow & brown. this is how it used to be in most meadows when I was a Child so am pleased they are coming back, a lovely photo great colours nicely presented as always, I put it to my favourite regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin Nature at it's best.
