Who Spat on the Plant?

We`ve been naughtily neglecting our blog..........

This kept appearing all over the Mallow plant before it bloomed...

Blooming now and not minding all the heavy rains...

The tomatoes and peppers are not happy with all the wet though.....

One single Delphinium has turned into this in it`s third year.

It was a sunny morning and then it began to pour heavy rain again. Teds was left outside and I had to run out and get the old slow poke inside.

A typical nap spot on a rainy day.....

Well, thankfully the heavy down-pour only lasted a few minutes. Enough to re-drown the veg though. It`s July and not supposed to be raining still so much.
Yesterday we had the most amount of rain since the 1930`s. I don`t like these extreme weather changes at all. Whatever next? Surely it won`t snow before it`s time!!
Oh well. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Last Saturday, a rare and hot sunny day, we went to Toronto and met up with my daughter and her boyfriend. Then we walked around Queen Street area and did a bit of shopping. The camera was low on batteries so we were only able to snap these pictures. Interesting idea though. Two Mimes...one a soldier and the other an angel.
The meaning was self explanatory...

It poured here (Saturday) and we got soaked. It felt so good in this heat and humidity. :)

When my nephew Caleb was little I told him that was cobra spit on the plants. He believed me for a long time. He kept wanting to see the snakes!

The rain is this side of the Atlantic too, it would be so good to see the sun for a few days. Poor Teddy looks a trifle damp but Angus seems to have things sorted:)
