Sun Day

On US Eclipse Day, the sun here is just eclipsed by a cloud but embraced by a halo…

…and followed by a dog.


Critter of the Day: Lily Beetle

Found these handsome insects on the remains of an ugly plant which they had reduced to sticks. Whole lot went into bin. No loss. Even the bloke who gave it to us said the flowers looked like the face of the devil.
Yesterday was our sunniest August day ever: >11kWh. Today was the second sunniest.
We are watching Ripper Street.
