Last week was a bit cloudy and miserable, and I was struck by how beautiful the garden was when the sun comes out. Raindrops glistening and all that.
When it’s cloudy, everything seems that little bit more dour, and when the sun comes out less so.
There’s something about sunshine that makes everything seem just that little bit more positive.
I prefer sunglasses with amber lenses rather than green or black for just that reason.
Right now I’m enjoying the sunshine when I see it – we’re in a la nina weather pattern so we have to take it when we can find it!
Not that the rain isn’t needed or welcome, it makes the sunshine even better when it comes.
