Stormy Saturday and a blood orange

Humdinger of a storm today - Eddie has been under the chaise for the whole day. He's terrified of thunder, the poor baby. I'm trying to coax him out, as the worst seems to be over, although it's still bucketing down on and off. This pic shows sideways rain.

It rained so heavily that a blood orange fell off the tree so I dashed out to rescue it. It was juicy and delicious, if a little less sweet than I expected, and with such lovely raspberry-stained insides.

I'm still amazed that such a tiny tree could mature three oranges in the first year of its planting.

I love how the rain makes the lavender bend under the weight of the water and take on such an intensity of colour...
