Continuing to spread a bit of light and pleasure to those confined by the current crisis. See post 1, here, for an explanation.
This is the 15th post.
Today is Valerie’s birthday, so I’ll keep this brief, as I like to dedicate the day to her.
Yesterday’s rain was augmented by more during the night, and it didn’t stop until after 15:00 today. For a while, we thought we were going to have to get wet, as we certainly weren’t going without a walk of some sort and I was determined to get something to post here for you; Valerie agreed.
It’s quite extraordinary what a few hours gentle rain can do at this time of the year. The forest has suddenly come alive again. There will be further growth, as the year moves on, but this first real spurt has transformed the place, brought out the greens that make it such a pleasure. And it’s washed the mud and dust from autumn’s fallen leaves, bringing their warmth back to life as well.
I’ve attached three pictures today, to show the colours now so evident, even on a dull grey afternoon. Enjoy!
Keep safe and well, everyone!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. It’ll help others enjoy this bit of nature if you could spread the word with the ‘share’ buttons below. Let’s all do what we can for each other during this testing and trying time, please. Thank you.
