A colourful slap in the kipper from Mother Nature.

Today was programmed for cleaning and tidying the family cave, but I couldn’t resist sneaking into the garden to take a few pictures after the rain. I was literally gobsmacked by the amount of colour and life clamouring to be seen out there.

I’ve had fun reducing some of these photos and creating only glimpses of them. I have realised just how much beauty we miss in the simplest things, and how beautiful they can be.

Here are a few of them, with a special thought for snow-bound fellow blogger Perpetua πŸ™‚ Have a lovely Easter!

  1. Ooo, thanks, MM! I really needed that dose of colour and beauty after more than a week in a monochrome world with not a single flower visible. πŸ™‚ Have a lovely Easter.

  2. What a lovely colourful collection. I went out yesterday to pick the solitary daffodil for our Easter lunch table, but the poor thing’s been around for a couple of weeks already and it was really too manky. We had wine on the table instead. πŸ™‚

    • Wine’s an excellent replacement, if you choose one with a flashy label and inspiring contents πŸ˜‰ Have a great Easter Monday (clouds moving in as I type, this is going to be like my childhood Easter in Britain with rain pouring down the window….)
