Feeling a bit like Julie Andrews I was able to capture "raindrops on roses" when I did finally venture out with my camera.
To my delight this beauty is by my kitchen door and makes me smile every time I pass by.
The decades old wisteria, that was growing rampantly across the garden when we came here 20 years ago, continues to thrill with it's heavy flowers and heady scent.
Orange and pink tinged honeysuckle and apricot coloured climbing roses grow up through the Virginia creeper and bring colour to the front of the Presbytere, bursting through the relentless green to find the light.
A hot pink rhododendron rescued from the reject corner at the Jardin d'Elle garden centre six years ago has also benefitted greatly from the damp days.
Hoping the sun comes out this weekend...........
