Ja well, this is an entry taken yesterday for the current photo competition, ‘favourite thing(s)’ An explanation follows –
I have been Sunday working today, and when I got up at 7.15 am, bleary eyed, the sun was out. I woke up properly as I had my first cuppa….
I picked this from my garden yesterday, and snapped it this morning, back-lit by the promise of a beautiful day….

I have been away, in the sun. How wonderful. But back in the UK last night I’m had to put on long trousers, a jumper and my socks plus slippers, while I browsed the holiday photos.
It was actually dry as we landed at Heathrow yesterday afternoon, but we’d only been home half an hour when the drizzle started. Then the drizzle turned heavier and the possibility of cutting the rather lush grass turned into an impossibility.
We stayed in the mountains up behind Nice, high up, in a small village. It was so beautiful. This was the view, on the first morning, which was a little cloudy. After the second day the clouds cleared.
My garden is battered, wet and lush. Luckily I put in plenty of stakes early on, but even so so extra support work is needed after yesterday’s wind. All the trees looked as though they were madly auditioning for a ‘because I’m worth it,’ hair tossing competition and this morning there are plenty of tattered green shreds on the ground.

Today I noticed in the cherry tree several clusters of red leaves among the summery green ones and I thought of Autumn. The sun was shining weakly, the blushed leaves stood out against a pewter sky and we waited for the rain, again.
