Sunshine on a rainy day ...
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Ours was good, somewhat tempered by the weather. Fortunately the sun shone when we needed it to most and it ran away and hid for the rest of the time.
We were able to watch our youngest dance outside during the Fringe Festival and join the heaving crowds of people visiting the city for the day.
We were able to go to a grown up birthday party, dressed in our summery finest but were unable to take our coats off ...
We were able to catch half hours of sunshine in the garden
and drool over the promise of strawberries
the blue against the white.
I picked a posy of white flowers in between the showers. The flowers being at their whiteiest (!) after the downpour and the air smelling the sweetest.
My little red teapot now sits on the kitchen table, a floral fragrant reminder that the sun is just a cloud away.
I was able to pick some rosemary and smell the scent of summer and close my eyes to the sight of dreary winter through the windows.
Whilst sitting at my computer just now, I looked up and saw a rainbow on the bookshelf
and a pot of gold at my side.
