I am determined to get a good photo of these flowers; this one is a definite improvement over previous attempts. Not sure what it is — my brain says “pink magnolia”, though not with any level of confidence — but it’s a welcome splash of colour on yet another grey (and windy) day.

In spite of the seemingly never-ending greyness, I am quite enjoying wandering the local streets in search of interesting textures and pretty flowers. My knee isn’t quite so happy about the walking, but apparently exercise is good for you…

Another dull day weather-wise, but at least it wasn’t raining this afternoon so I went out for a wander around one of the local recreation grounds. Lots of lovely textures, but I thought I’d counter the greyness of the day with this shot of bright yellow.

And it’s raining again. And I’m feeling run down. And I have a thousand and one things on my todo list*. So long walks are simply not happening today. I’ve had a couple of goes at getting photos of the neighbour’s magnolia blossom; took one I was almost happy with, but not quite, maybe it’ll be third time lucky… We’ll have to make do with a small carpet (a rug?) of very wet flowers that might be violets instead.
*This may be a slight exaggeration, but that’s what it feels like.

We had sunshine! It’s been so grey, cold and wet this year that “sunshine” was even trending on Twitter in the UK. I wasn’t sure I’d get out much past the front door today as I was stuck in waiting for deliveries; luckily they all turned up while it was still light so I got to appreciate these colourful flower boxes that someone had hung on the railings by the river Wandle.
