LOOKING UP AND DOWN

Like many most places in the world at the moment, the weather here hasn't really settled. This time last year we were having the hottest May for many years, yet this year we are still having rain and cool cold winds....this week's pictures for the photographic meme LOOK UP, LOOK DOWN (brainchild of my friend HELENA) reflect this!

LOOKING UP

As I was sitting out on the naya tonight and looked up, I noticed these clouds rolling in over the mountains





LOOKING DOWN

As I walked back in after taking the picture above, I noticed this reflection in the puddle in the pergola...... it hasn't dried up from rain early this morning



Hope you're all having a good week....mine was made even better by the news that my dad got home from hospital last night!...we're just hoping that he stays home for a while now.

Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you
Alison xx

  4. Hooray that your Dad is now home. It is like that with us at the moment. One moment it is cold and rainy and the next it is sunshine although not very hot here yet!

  5. Glad your Dad is home. I'm hoping for more rain around here - saves me having to nag the daughter to water the flowers!

  9. The threatening clouds breasting the mountains is a great shot--very dramatic--and quite the contrast with the one of reflection. And I'm very glad to know your dad is home--hopefully the caregiving improvements your brothers have been working on will improve your dad's health and quality of life.

  13. Great news that your Dad is home. The weather is so weird lately - last week it was in the 30's and this week it won't hit 20.
