I try to make it a rule to only post to my blog once every week or two. But recently, we've received a spate of wild and exotic weather. Perhaps it's a reward, or an apology for the months of fog we've endured. Over the past few days, we've had waves of rain showers and lightning storms mixed with intervals of sunshine and clearing. The changing patterns of the clouds and the rain-laden foliage, have kept me sprinting in circles with my camera.
