Rain and more rain

I was hoping when we turned the calendar to May, we would be blessed with some really Springlike weather, but rain and cold seem to be the order of the day.

Yesterday was warm and sunny, but today we are back to a cold rain, and the forecast is for more of the same for the rest of the week.

The pasture is lush and green, and normally my horses would spend all afternoon out there chowing down, but today they are huddled in their shelter, unwilling to brave the chill.  Now that the longer days are here, they like to stay out until after eight o’clock, but it looks like I will have to bring them into the barn early tonight and give them extra hay.

The exceptionally wet weather is producing a fine crop of Dandelions.  Although they are a terrible nuisance in our lawns and flower beds, they really are quite beautiful, and I read something the other day, encouraging us not to kill them as bees rely on them because they are one of the first things to bloom in the Spring.

Managed to get some shots of my apple blossoms before the rain spoiled them.  The wind made it quite challenging.  Anyone who considers flower photography ‘Still Life’ has never tried to photograph them on a windy day!
