Let’s Go Have Some Sun

It has rained for several weeks now. Every day, just rain, rain, rain. And though the garden looks excellent and the grass is greener than I’ve ever seen, we have wanted nothing more than to get outside and enjoy the sun.

This weekend we spent every moment basking in the clear skies and crisp breeze, maybe a little too much since we both got some sunburn. I think the bees and the butterflies and every other critter were also waiting for the sun because they were out in force, competing for all the flowers that have bloomed with the excess rain.

    Great photos! I don’t want to know what those ladybugs are doing…. Tom looks very Bavarian doing a wanderweg, and amazing pattern on that first thistle.
