With so much rain of late, it was lovely to wake this morning with the sun streaming through the windows.
After being away for a couple of days, I’d missed walking my dogs, so was looking forward to a stroll around the local park, I armed myself with my camera and we set off. The light was amazing, it was so clear, everything look vibrant and alive.
The simple, much hated dandelion looked stunning, as did the humble daisy, so I started snapping away with my camera.
Blossom in the sunshine, blue skies up above and Jasper.
We walked further round the park, stopped to listen to the woodpecker, watched the squirrels chasing each other across the branches. This is what retirement is about 🙂
Could it really last?
Huh, what was that? a rumble in the distance, was that thunder? The sun disappears, the sky is getting dark, so we make a dash back home.
Within five minutes of walking through the front door, the heavens open.
Hailstones on the garden furniture.
We’d just got back in time from what could have been a very painful walk.
