When the sun has been absent for long stretches of time and the rain has dripped and drizzled or poured down on and off for weeks, a sunny day is such a tonic.
Yesterday was a warm and sunny day. I took my lunch outside and soaked up the healthy Vitamin D on offer. I could feel the goodness raising my spirits.
I checked the magnolia and the bud I have blogged about here.
Like me the buds have been waiting patiently for the sunshine and warmth.
Look at the soft suede-like petals, happy to open, at last, in the right conditions.
And with the aid of the macro on the camera have a peep in here. What beauty is held within the cup of petals.
