I was looking for the paper in the bushes this morning... didn't find it, but I did get to experience the early morning beauty of an approaching summer. It rained in the night. Everything is soaked but sparkling in the early morning sunlight. There is a glorious stillness in the air, not a whisper of a breeze, and ferns hang heavily, still laden with the night's rain. A glistening spider web stretches across the hydrangea. A row of pigeons are lined up on the powerline in the sun, desperately trying to look like extras from The Birds. Then one lets go of a soft coo, and their silhouettes lose their menace immediately. Blades of grass rise from our sandy soil to meet the challenge of a great day ...and I shall do the same.

It was perfect here all day, not a breath of wind and hot sunshine. 8C doesn't sound so good. We hardly get down to that in the winter most days. I'll send you some virtual warmth... um, how about that sunrise pic I had...

That was lovely!
We're getting some pretty skies and lovely tree colours - just very low temperatures to go with them!!!

How've you been?
Oh, had a lot on. Big decisions to make and life events happening. All contributing to life's rich tapestry, all unfolding exactly no doubt as it should. But I am fine. Thanks!
