Just mooching about

If you don't live in the UK you won't believe my next statement; yesterday it was too hot to go to the plot!

We had intended to get a second afternoon weeding and tidying at the allotment but decided that if we did we would probably fry - and so we stayed in the garden to mooch about a little.

Martyn's mooching was a bit more productive than mine as I spent time mainly doing very little. This time the summerhouse was actually used as a shady place to sit rather than as a shelter. I did venture out though and take a few photos which I will sprinkle in between other posts over the next few days or so.
This is a photo taken of the underside of one of our ferns - I think it's a lady fern.

  1. An interesting photo. It did spit a bit of rain here yesterday & it is over cast today. Still warm though.

  2. Well, there's a turn up for the book - too hot for the plot! Whatever next?
    I know what you mean though. Our climate doesn't really justify the installation of domestic air-conditioning systems, but yesterday was one of the rare occasions on which I wish we had one. Our temperature was over 31C. At least I can be thankful for having aircon in my car, because I have spent a lot of time on the M25 recently.

    1. How did we ever manage with cars without air-con, Mark? No doubt summer will soon hide away again.

  3. Too hot?! Wow.

    It's very cold and wet here. But it's winter, so I'm not complaining.

    I was wondering what the picture depicted - before I read your caption - and was way off. I thought it might be something to eat. Caviar garnished with crispy fried garlic slices or similar. On a bed of very thin vermicelli. Teeheee...

    So, thank you, for a totally different, and educational, photo. :)

    1. It is incredible isn't it VG - it's one extreme or the other with us but maybe my too hot is your just right as I don't suffer heat gladly!

      It's the teacher in me - can't get away from the need to educate.

  4. That is some photo! I couldn't figure out what it was by just looking at it. I was thinking some sort of berry.

    2. To add I suppose in common with berries they are fruiting bodies!
