“No. Now, shut up and eat your pears.”
― Suzanne Collins

The weather has been absolutely awful today with rain, rain, more rain and lots of wind – and to top it all off the work computers went down right when I had mountains of things to do. So my photos match my mood. Rubbish, dull and more rubbish!

I was at a bit of a loss as to what I could shoot today. I eyed up the pears. They stared back at me. Eventually I won, and I shot them on the table! So viscous. I added in some grapes too but they didn’t want to play my game and ended up rolling away.

Then I shot the flowers that have been vibrant and pretty for weeks (I blogged them on the Garden Inn Day) and decided that they needed to look dark and dreary too.

Green, as you may or may not have noticed, is pretty much my favourite colour in the Summer closely followed by Oranges, Reds and Browns in Winter. I can’t wait for these leaves to turn so I can get some Autumnal pictures. I know I’m wishing away summer – but it’s time!

The bank holiday is looming and with it a barrage of rain and wind set to come and batter England, it’s only fair that it brings Autumn with it! I hope wherever you are that regardless, you have a good one!
