But despite the rain, it's always a pleasure working with plants and I consider myself fortunate to spend so much of my time outside. I'll never get tired of the endless variation found in the plant kingdom with all of its shapes, colours, scents and texture.
As an example, today I snapped a couple of photos of Fatsia japonica. The newly emerging leaves reminded me of 'praying hands'.
Perhaps they were praying for better weather!
