There’s that lovely sunshine

November 13, 2013

Yesterday late afternoon I looked thru to the living room, grabbed my camera and took this shot:

Yup, it’s the sun making an appearance for the last five minutes just before setting…typical!

But then, this morning the sun is still here! So I grabbed my camera and went to have a look at the small magic in the front garden:

Karen, you’ve got your wish! πŸ˜€

Hope it’s a lovely day for everyone.

    Gorgeous images, dripping with colour!
    I wish I had time in the mornings to stop my car and take a photograph.
    The Valleys have been surrounded by mist early in the mornings (especially yesterday when we had frost too – and with the sun….
    Love to you Veronica!

      I love that Joanne. In OXON we get that too…except is so much flatter…but I love that morning fog, and especially getting that weak winter sun thru it. I wish I was there right now. πŸ™‚

    Yay! for sunshine!!
    Don’t you love those crappy days that the sun only comes out right at the end. I always thing, “really?” lol
    Are those purple berries? wow, incredible looking.
    Have a great day

      So unfair, isn’t it Dawn? We always get the sun just before sunset! Those are callicarpa berries; sometimes called a beautyberry bush. πŸ™‚
