Shadows will fall behind you!

Overcast with chance of showers.. for 10 sodden years

(But don't worry, chance of sunny spell in 2023)

Oh my my....I am upset!!!

With the weather predicted for the next 10 years, as years with wet summer, I've been sulking! No wonder why I'm feeling too low!:'(

Just glancing through the sunshine pictures and keeping me inspired!

Shadows behind!

Keep your face always towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you. 

~ Walt Whitman

Trying to get inspired.....

Hope you all had a wonderful day! Can't wait for tomorrow till I finish work!

Have a good evening everyone, while I gaze through my window at the showers outside!!!

Peace and love.........

Oh those baby Apples....!

These lovely crunchy baby apples are from a tree that I haven't noticed for three years. Yes, right beside my office at the car-park. 

Wondering if the tree did not bear any fruits at all before or if my eyes were that blind! 

Well, was so tempted to have one, but they are still too small / tender. I love unripe apples, their crunchy, sweet n sour taste.....mmmmm!!! 

As you can see, these are still too small....reminded me of guavas! Haven't had them for ages!!! :o) *SIGH*

A bunch of those crunchy baby apples....

I will be eyeing them from now on! The blossoms were pretty a few weeks ago! 

BTW...Still praying and hoping for some sunshine!

A baby apple, with that pretty red tint...!

You can already see the red tint...Makes me smile :-)))

Hope you've all had a superb week so far!

Have a great rest of the week...

Peace and love...

When the Sun goes down!

Loving the beautiful skies these days....
Enjoying their drama through my window!

Sun goes down - Dusky Sky

Don't lose hope. 
When the sun goes down, 
the stars come out. 

If there is one thing in life that you can never lose beside yourself, 
it is the hope for a better day, 
because there will always be one. 

Just as there are bad times; 
there will come good times as well. 

And even though things may seem uncertain in the moment, 
and even though fear may be trying to cloud your mind, 
fill your mind with hopeful thoughts, 
and remember to keep stepping out on faith as well. 

Liked the quotes above and feeling inspired + motivated...

Happy Weekend!

Peace and Love...

The Wild Clematis...

And it's Friday!!!

Loving the sunshine and the beauty it brings to the world around me...

The Clematis near my workplace are in bloom and Dora Read Goodale's poem comes to my mind, it's not August though!

Clematis by the alleyway...

Where the woodland streamlets flow,
Gushing down a rocky bed,
Where the tasseled alders grow,
Lightly meeting overhead,
When the fullest August days
Give the richness that they know,
Then the wild clematis comes,
With her wealth of tangled blooms.
Reaching up and drooping low,

~Dora Read Goodale

Hope you all had a lovely week...

Have a relaxing weekend!

Something to inspire...

So another week is almost there, and the weekend has quietly slid past. We're almost towards the middle of this year and this makes me wonder, "Where have the days gone?"

"Do what you can with what you've got wherever you are."

Never look at others and worry about what you do not have, but instead, be happy and content with what you have and be grateful for that. Do your best, help when you can and wherever you can....

And, posting a picture from Summer 2012, as I still haven't got out of my little den to shoot pictures this Summer. I need to stay motivated......

These are from the gardens by the Embankment.

The pretty Dahlias by the Embankment in Bedford
From the Summer of 2012

I leave you all with these thoughts and hoping you all will be having a wonderful week ahead...

Sending you all some warm smiles...and it is a bit warm here today!

Peace and love...

Year without a Summer...

In the Spring of 1315, 
there began an era of unpredictable weather,
It did not lift until 1851. 

You remember 1816 as the year without a summer.
June 1816, 

a sudden snowstorm blankets all the countryside,
So Mary Shelley had to stay inside and she wrote Frankenstein,
Oh, 1816 was the year without a summer.

Grain couldn't ripen under these conditions,
It was brought indoors in urns and pots.
It'd go from ninety-five degrees to freezing within hours,
A brutal struggle for the people and the starving livestock.

Above lyrics from Rasputina - A year without a Summer

A field across the dark and gloomy sky!!!

I could not stop singing this song in my mind...

This is how the weather makes me feel...

Hoping for some warm sunshine :-)

Wishing you all a lovely weekend
Sending you warm smiles from my corner of the world...
