Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails

The Gallery – Sunshine


I’m not really sure that Tara could have chosen another theme for us this week.  We’ve basked, fried, splashed, sweated perspired and soaked up a good does of vitamin D in glorious sunshine – it’s lifted moods, it’s brought out expanses of flesh that have not seen the light of 2012 and provided the children with a whole new load of opportunities.  Toys that were ‘boring’ last year suddenly have a new lease of life as another year of wisdom, muscle strength and imagination are let loose…

The Magnolia tree next door that provided me with such glorious blooms earlier in the year suffered in the frost.  The rain and now the warmth have meant that the leaves are now providing a beautiful green canopy to lie under…

The darkness of my house seems to make the sun reflect even more brightly off the grass and the dandelion – so large and so small…

The evening sun on Sunday evening was glorious.  The children on the other hand… if anyone knows where the CTRL-ALT-DEL button is for a just 5 year old boy, please let me know…

Once they were in bed pretending to be asleep, I snuck out to photograph what had been calling me all day… determined to do so before the council men on their mowers come round again…
