As the song says, "Life can be so sweet on the sunny side of the street" - so I always try to walk on the sunny side!
Every day is a beautiful day if you walk on the sunny side of the street
Summer days will surely return.

Before the rain
When I went shopping at 9am yesterday the weather was bright and dry. As I packed away the groceries at 9:45 the first rumble of thunder came and the garden looked as if one of those grey army blankets had been placed over it. It was really strange the birds stopped their chatter , even the babies who squark for food all day.
Knowing a storm was brewing , I took the flower photos that I like to have for planning next season there and then, hence the darkness of the photos.
I wish there was smelly blogivision - lol. The gazebo is smothered in roses - white one side, a deep pink on the other side and their perfume envelops the entire garden.
I just got in the house as the storm arrived; thunder and lightening for four hours. The street drains couldn't cope with the deluge of rain and our drive was awash. Hailstones gouged at the flower beds and the wind shook our huge trees as if they were mere sticks. Then at 4PM the storm abated and brilliant sunshine returned.
