Storm Aftermath, Swimming Apples, Horns and a Rainbow

After a night of wind and rain, got up to a brighter sky than expected.
It didn't last for long - the skies soon greyed over and we were treated to several heavy downpours, one of which caught me for a soaking:-).
Buddleia flowers still retain a little of their colour even when going to seed. 
Dooking for apples - the overnight storm had flooded this box full. 
Ivy flowers abound. 
Evidence of some devilish activity:-)
Pretty flowers on this shrub.
Waiting to book a parking space. 
Another abandoned coathanger.
All the rain and low sunshine gave us a treat this afternoon - a nearly complete rainbow cross the Charlcombe Valley.
This evening I walked down to Larkhall to St Saviours Church Hall for a Pilates class - my first in quite some time and with a new teacher, just down the road from Stephen (who goes to the class as well). Did much better than I thought I might after such a long gap.
This day a year ago, Autumn proceeded apace giving rise to these pretty variegated  coloured leaves.
When We Were Young(er) on Zakynthos in 1989 we had a chance to try out Su the Engineer's sunshade on a very hot beach.
