We have had masses of rains lately, so not much walking, but yesterday afternoon we were treated to an unscheduled burst of sunshine. We popped into town for some milk, and on the way home up Sheinton Street, this back-garden cherry tree caught my eye. And then the chimney pots with the sun on them, plus the odd visual juxtaposition of Wenlock Priory ruins, and the surviving roof-height elevation of the south transept (just to the left of the tree).

Love the peek at the priory over the rooftops, Tish! And you had some welcome sun
Thanks, Sue. You certainly have to grab the sunshine while it’s there. Here in Shropshire it is already going dark – at 1.45 !
Dark here today too. Lights on all day.
That is a bit depressing, sin’t it.
Ouf….1.45 IS a bit early!
Always a bonus to see the sun at this time of year. I popped out to plant some crocus bulbs during our half hour yesterday.
That’s a nice thought – bulbs. I’ve completely forgotten about them this year. Not to late for tulips though.
I wondered where our sunshine had gone, Tish. You’ve got it, and you’re very welcome! I was astounded to see my first cherry blossom of the season today. It normally has the decency to wait at least till late December.
Gosh, though, what a heartening sight – cherry blossom! The sun didn’t stay long. More rain tomorrow. My water butts are overflowing.
We save water like it’s going out of fashion, Tish, but there’s a limit 😁💖
I love a characterful roofscape, and this is a good ‘un.
Thanks for that, Margaret.
So glad you could get out for a quick moment. Wonderful rooftops 😀
Thank you, Cee. It was pretty quick too – the next downpour waiting to come along 🙂
yesterday was definitely a day for grabbing the sunshine when you could, and didn’t it glisten for you
It did glisten, Becky.
just dropped by to say hello Tish
That’s very lovely of you, Mak. How are you? I wish I could send you some of our rain. We are in a sea of mud in Wenlock.
No dear, don’t send rain. Nairobi is wet and a bit chilly.
I am doing well, thank you. Hope you too are well
Good to hear you’ve got some rain, though ‘chilly’ sounds more like our neck of the woods than yours. We are fine, though the shamba is a quagmire and the leeks have been afflicted by allium beetles, the rotters.
There are roads in Nairobi that feel worse than your shamba as a result of poor drainage.
Have a pleasant Friday and weekend ahead.
I remember some of those roads. Graham was doing his smut survey (during an El Nino phase) around Kiambu and Escarpment. Only the trusty old land rover could cope with the road slips and mud.
I like your title for this post.
