Sunny Rooms

Today the sun shone its light into our rooms. As yesterday, accessing the gallery by clicking on any image will reveal individual titles.

This afternoon I watched the televised Six Nations rugby matches between Italy and Ireland, and between Wales and England.

Dinner this evening consisted of tasty baked gammon; creamy mashed potatoes; piquant cauliflower cheese; crunchy carrots; and tender runner beans, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Merlot Tannat.


  1. Such a difference a sunny day makes. I’m glad you enjoyed the rugby. Not for me though, I switched off in favour of writing in advance for the blogs.

  2. Gorgeous, artistic sun and shadows photos! My favs are Shadows on the Staircase, Backlit Leaves, and Shadows in the Kitchen!!! πŸ™‚ I’m sure the sun is pleased that you showed it’s bestest work! πŸ˜‰
    (((HUGS))) and Happy Sunny Whee-kend to you and Jackie!!! πŸ™‚
    PS… I know a grape who spends his time sitting in the sun. It’s his raisin d’etre. Ha! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

  3. I love a sunny room, and it doesn’t even have to be mine for me to appreciate it! Yours are lovely, and it must be spirit-lifting to have so much sunshine after your recent weeks of rain, gloom, and such.

    1. Thanks very much, Dolly. As we have a south facing garden the sunlight pictures all appear in the back. The sun does not penetrate the north facing front πŸ™‚

      1. You are very welcome, Derrick. We have the opposite setup: kitchen is facing north, and the front windows face the courtyard. As a result, fortunately, we don’t get sun anywhere, which is the most prized architectural trick in South Florida.

  4. There is a lovely sense of warmth and ‘renewal’ when one can open the curtains and let the sunshine in. Having said that, we have had far too much of it and so the closed curtains help to keep the heat at bay. As the autumn proceeds and the winter arrives, then I too will open our house to invite the sunshine in again.

  5. hi Derrick
    what beauty you captured with the sun and light bringing shapes and moodiness to each area
    and the food sounds good
    we had “crunchy baby carrot fries” – they were lightly baked with oil and salt and were so good

  6. I hope the intensity of the sunshine means you had as nice a day there as we did here. The last picture puzzles me. Every time I think my mind has a handle on what it is, the idea slips away.

  7. hi
    like all the light and shadow but my favs today are the direct street sheets
    the car and jogger
    the car and cyclist
    the car and walkers
    you give us this moment of time
    life in action
    and a pulse of life with the pauses in the other photos with sunlight

  8. My fave is the light across the stairs. Each one of these photos makes me think of Spring sun, and that means each one brought me a bit of happiness. Thank you! I had to look it up: gammon. Aha! Seems like that would be more common of a thing, since I never told anyone I needed my ham always pre-prepared for me.
