Springtime

I haven’t been well this week as I caught the work team’s cold bug which resulted in lots of sleep but no voice. What a way to feel part of the group! However, even thought I am still feeling so-so today it hasn’t dampened my inner enthusiasm for Spring and the anticipation of warmer weather.  I don’t enjoy the really hot days of Summer but I do love the balmy days of this time of year, coupled with bright, beautiful sunshine that makes me smile in spite of myself. What’s your favourite time of year?

The sunshine is soft

Work-free Friday

Small taste of springtime /

Sunshine and friendly chit chat /

Soothing to my soul

Winter cuddle

Snuggly blanket /

Made with grandmotherly love /

Still warms like her hugs

Dark clouds

Got rainy day blues /

Illness and Winter weather /

A perfect combo

Stormy weather

Very rainy day /

Cracks of lightning ‘cross dark skies /

Glad to be inside

Caught in the act

A dark rainy night /

Driving to friend’s house, then “flash!” /

Whoops, speed camera

The wait continues…

Waiting for good rain /

Looking to skies for relief /

Ground still not sated
