Armchair Travels, When It Rains .1st March 2013

The first day of autumn, the temperature dropped and the rain fell, by the bucket.
 Much too wet today to go outdoors, so instead it was time to call on plan C. All the photos shown today were taken prior to 'Flora Friday' and were probably not even taken on a Friday but I have put them together on a Friday, so, I suppose that falls within the rules I have set for myself.  No close-ups but just the flora that was in the holiday snap that was taken at the time
