After the Rain


Every season screams colour, from the golds, browns and oranges of Autumn to the pinks, purples and whites of Spring. Winter may be dreary and bleak for us right now but after the rain there is beauty to be found.

Everything is so lush and green at the moment. The garden tends to get neglected over the winter, the trees become unruly, the grass is long and soft.

The leaves are full of tiny raindrops that shower down on you as you brush past.

There are some signs of new growth. Small amounts of colour to brighten our days, including these guys:

They popped into our garden last week and feasted on a neglected apple still hanging in the bare tree. They stayed for ages and didnt seem to mind me walking around photographing them. I love their colourings, nature is truly inspiring!!!

Wow..what gorgeous birds. I have never seen anything like that living in the wild. I wonder if they were pets that someone just set loose?
