Rain and shine … this week, Louise and I have taken photos reflecting both weather conditions.
Last weekend Blue Eyes and I took advantage of spring-like weather and drove to York, not quite two hours from where I live. We were on a mission to find wildflowers. It took more than two hours to get to our final destination but that’s because we kept stopping to take photos. The canola was in full glory and I took photo after photo of sweeping fields of gold. I chose this photo because the sprig of canola pops out from the field.
As for other wildflowers, in particular the fields of everlasting daisies I’ve heard so much about, it looks like they are yet to bloom in this area. Another week or so, and I think the area will be bursting with colour.
Louise says the weather can’t make up its mind lately, changing from rain to sunshine to rain again. One day it’s warm enough for short sleeves, and the next it’s wild and wet again, and out come the winter woollens.
Louise took her photo last week while waiting for her son to run into the shop. She says: ‘I had my camera in the car with me, and the head and tail lights of the cars going by shone through the raindrops on the windscreen—I must have a thing with windscreens at the moment! It’s probably not everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s something different …’
Works for me!
