Glorious spring days

A Hosepipe ban has been called and the heavens have opened with more than just April Showers. Maybe the weather will read this passage and bring back glorious sunny days, with rain during the night.


'However, in these glorious spring days the sense of life was too pleasant to be much clouded... The graceful wild clematis festooned the shrubbery along the creeks with great wreaths of magnificent white bloom, which loaded every breeze with perfume; the pretty bright green senna shrubs along the river-banks were decked in blossoms that rivalled the deep blue of the sky in brilliance;... The cry of the leather-heads was heard in the orchard as the cherry season approached. Oh it was good to be alive!' Miles Franklin My Brilliant Career

  1. Ah yes, if we ordered the world, it would only ever rain at night so the morning was washed clean for new adventures.

    1. Yes! Although I'm sure we would then say "oh I miss the scent of summer rain." Hope you stay dry.

  2. It is good to be alive in spring, isn't it? Much better than living under the deadly sun of July in Arizona!
