On the home straight now . . .
If anyone had said today's weather was
going to be worse than yesterday, I would not have believed them. I was wrong. There has been torrential rain for most
of the day. In the late afternoon, there was a bit of brightness, so I rushed
out to try to get today's shot but it was quite windy.
This is a shot
that I was hoping to get. This Azalea has been in bud for some time and I have
been waiting for it to open. When it is fully in bloom it is a mass of yellow
flowers and the scent is amazing. I could wait no longer. Here it is just
starting to flower.
The purple/blue in the background is actually a
carpet of bluebells.
