A Day In The Sun

What's that I see up in the sky?  A bird?  A plane?  No, something better than Superman for sure.  By golly, it's the SUN !

It seems we've had nothing but rain here for the past two weeks along with grey, dreary skies.  Not that I'm complaining.  Rain is WAY better than the ice storms we usually get around here in January.  But the rain has turned my yard into one big sponge and this girl is wanting to get outside and get some yard work done big time.  This time last year we were doing our big burn, trimming and pruning all the yard waste. 

Friday, SM had called me at work to tell me that "the sun was out and it was a glorious day!"  I think he wanted to cheer me up but I was busy at the time and was less than enthusiastic to hear what I was missing.  I think I hung up on him pretty quick and was thinking very cranky thoughts. 

Never fear.  Saturday arrived with blue skies and warm temperatures and now I get to make YOU cranky hearing about how wonderful a day it was.

I was a bit concerned about the squish factor out there but by 2:00 in the afternoon when I wandered out, the ground was pretty firm and the temps were in the low 60's.  I had on shorts and a tee shirt and started out looking for photo-ops.  Care to take a stroll with me?

I noticed this robin in the maple tree right away.  Looks like I found this months "header" photo.

These crepe myrtle flower "shells" made for a stunning textural study.

Ginny snoozing in the sun.

We had a bit of a breeze that I tried to capture the motion of with the Palmetto grass. 

I even noticed some flowers blooming on this Wax Myrtle.  A lovely day indeed. 

I hope your weekend was just as nice.


  1. Sun? OMG....I haven't seen that in forever!

    Love the Palmetto grass against the blue blue sky. Gorgeous!

  2. Lovely photos. We are blessed with sun most of the time. Today will also be sunny and in the 60's. I think I need to go play in the garden today.

  3. Nice, nice, nice! Love the new header. Enjoy the sun!

  4. Oh, it looks like a very beautiful day indeed! And it looks like you fully enjoyed it :)
