Yesterday.....After the Rain...



After it had rained all day....

Even a few rumbles of thunder...

The sun managed to squeeze her face out around 6pm.....

And....

What a splendid job she did. ♥️






The sunset hitting the kitchen....





It just kept getting better and better....

Still trying to position pictures....may take me a few days....

Sun is out this morning....windy....cool

Gonna go for a walk...

Have a great day...

Cheers!  :o)

  3. How inviting those chairs look! Love your little cottage kitchen! You may need to get an antibiotic kiddo. Don't let it go too long and ruin your vacay!
    Wish I could sit in one of those chairs with you!

  4. Beautiful sunsets, Linda . . .I bet you could sit there for hours ~ a little like your lake but with lots of salt.
    See you quickly found some interesting flower specimens to shoot.
    If you go surfing watch out for those big black fins . . . . :)

    1. Hi Eddie...
      No surfing for me! You might be thinking about California.....maybe?
      I hate to complain....but today was very cold and windy....no sun since noon...:o(
      I hope it surprises me again today....

    2. So sorry about the bad weather and your sinus infection ~ think antibiotics might be the answer like Kris suggested.
      Shame it is so cold there for you ~ let's hope for better things tomorrow. . . . . :)

    1. Very talented if you thought that was the Moon Dixie!
      It is the Sunset....will look for the Mr Moon later in the month....

      Delete
    2. I thought I saw the moon too, Linda. Sun and moon in one pretty picture. No?

      Dixie, we need to stop drinking. When Linda says there's no moon, there's no moon. But when I looked in the mirror, I swear I thought I saw the moon, too. Weird huh?

      Delete
    3. Yes...I think you both better quit drinking....for a while...
      NO MOON!

  14. Beautiful Hibiscus photos, Linda. I'm looking out the window at dirty white, grey and more dirty white. blah! A little colour would do wonders. Oh, I hope you're feeling better soon. Do take care so you can enjoy the sunshine.

  16. I love the morning's "golden" moment when the sun pours through the window.
    And I love the rosy glow of evening sunsets too.
    The beach looks lovely.

  17. How pretty....sunsets seem even more special after a day of rain!
    You might have to look for an Urgent Care near you there...they are a doctor's office that takes walk-ins, in case you don't have them up north.
    Feel better! Hope it warms up!

  19. Okay, I'm feeling very badly for you, especially since I just read your comment about your special day tomorrow. So, a Florida walk in clinic sounds about right, because it sure sounds like you need a round of antibiotics, LSK. And it'll most likely be pricey, but very necessary! Okay, is that enough of a lecture? Take care of yourself, hope you have a good night's rest and that the weather warms up!

  21. One thing I always loved about Florida was the ever-present hibiscus. So pretty. Was at the opera tonight and BOY was it chilly on the walk home. Was practically holding my breath. Supposed to be a polar vortex this weekend. Enjoy it while you can... hope that nasty sinus infection hits the road.

  23. Okay, blogger ate my comment, so I'll try again...

    Everything looks so beautiful! I wish I could transport myself to a tropical destination. Very cold here today, but I believe we're going to have sunshine. You may have succeeded, after all, in sending some my way. Have a beautiful day (especially TODAY). *wink wink* I wish you all the best. Cheers, my friend! xo
