Plenty of April showers this year. Last night we had a hail storm around 3am. I stood at the window and watched it, the hail was coming down so hard and fast. This morning there were pockets of white hail stones in the gardens and on roofs. I hope any blossom hasn't suffered too much.
These photographs are from a few days ago when I took an early walk after a night of rain.
Sparkling water droplets in the sun
although some of the flowers look a bit bedraggled
the plant equivalent of a "bad hair day".
Always grateful for the showers though, so much fresh green growth, the countryside seems to change daily in April and May.
