Today The Sun Came Out To Play

Individual picture titles will be found on the gallery, otherwise I will leave the title and the sun in charge.

This evening we dined on roast chicken thighs; chipolata sausages; crisp roast potatoes, parsnips and Yorkshire pudding; sage and onion stuffing; flavoursome Brussels sprouts and carrots, with tasty gravy. Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank Cotes de Gascogne Merlot Tannat 2019.


  1. Since I’ve been hearing your weather has improved, I was about to ask you about the garden, but you were already on board with the camera!! Good going!

  2. The pendant owl and shadow is a fascinating shot. And my how your bulbs have decided to take off! Some of our bulbs are just breaking the surface, but the 60F forecast for this weekend will no doubt bring some on.

  3. Ah, your February garden always helps me remember that spring will, indeed, come again. I loved the two hellebore shots – the one with the bee and the one with the delicate shadow.

  4. How lovely! I want to sit in your garden. ? The light and shadows are wonderful, and I agree with Jodierichelle about those two shots. I was excited to see two crocuses poking out of the ground this morning.

  5. So envious. The snow has mostly melted but here in Canada we know that March usually brings more snow and cold temperatures. It took so long to get really cold this year that some of my bulbs were peaking out in January but we’ll be lucky if we get blooms in April. Our son in London, has been telling us how nice the weather has been over there. Enjoy!

  6. The sun is happy playing around your garden, hugging the tree trunks, seeping through the leaves, kissing the dried up grass, smiling back at brave flowers and waking up the ones gone into a deep slumber.

  7. Wow! What a marvelous gallery! Shadows on stumpery with a wood hand reaching in, delightful little glass birds, and BEES! Spring is coming!

  8. As much as we long for rain, I never fail to enjoy the play of sunlight on our surroundings and can imagine the joy a day of sunshine must give you after such a long period of gloom and wet. Your garden looks in good shape after the winter – plenty of joyful potential there for the spring as your days warm up.

  9. What a beautiful day when the sun comes out to play! I know you welcomed it with open arms!
    You’ve captured such creative shadow art! πŸ™‚
    Love seeing the insects, the 3 glass birds, and the sweet owls! I love owls! πŸ™‚ OH, and the backlit emerging bulbs bring hope and joy! πŸ™‚
    Your photos and blog posts are like the sun…you brighten our days and bring us warmth at night. πŸ™‚
