Sunshine after the storm

Last evening a quick storm blew through breaking the stifling, muggy heat. It was before sundown and once it passed by the sun broke through the dark clouds and shone so warm and dazzling, I grabbed the camera, slipped on my gardening crocs and dashed outside to take some pictures. In ten minutes I raced around our yard trying to capture and freeze into memory the awesome beauty of the moment.  Little moments like these need to be appreciated, don’t you think?  What gives you a thrill to see?

So here is an unplanned wet tour of our yard as it was last night.

In the front of our house:

And less dramatic, swinging around along the side of our house:

      Thanks Ange, it is doing well this year after years of neglect, then being ripped up, rebuilt and replanted sort of haphazardly. Now I need to take notes on what is too high etc. and move things around a little.

    Thanks Aunty Ada! I think there are moments of beauty happening all the time but we don’t always take the time to enjoy them for a couple minutes.
