One view, two perspectives

The darling buds of May have exploded into leaves and grass and flowers.

The long light evenings mean that it is more difficult to stay awake to see the sun setting. In May, the sun is till high in the sky as it peeps shyly through the graceful curtains of leaves.

What a contrast to the same time a month ago! The April sunsets were marvellous viewed through the bare silhouettes of the trees.

What a difference a month makes!

    No wonder you have this feeling of jumping directly into summer from winter. The photos a test this! So like the fact that you and family live so close to water.
