Utterly gorgeous photos. I haven't seen much of our day today either, too cold and wet this afternoon.
so much promise in those photos ...
Leaves on trees! My goodness! It's positively blooming in the south!
A look in your garden is vibrancy in the rain.
Just popped over from Slow Lane Life and am very taken with your blog. It was a beautiful day today in Edinburgh - though not exactly warm. I wonder where you were to get rain. Love that portrait of poor Mrs [can't remember] who had 11 children and then - as you suspect - had to say goodbye to them. We have only three but are finding the goodbye stage very hard.
I would go barefoot in the rain for a chance to walk in such a garden... :)
