Sometimes when you get what you wish for it turns out to be a bit of a mixed blessing. We've gone through a dry spell here over the last number of weeks so we've been hoping for rain. Well, we got some rain - not copious amounts, but enough to rejuvenate the ground and all things dependent on it. At the same time, however, the day turned out dreary and surprisingly cool (15C/60F). So it wasn't the kind of day to go traipsing around outdoors.
Instead I looked around for other opportunities, and decided to make a little game out of what I found. I've already given you some clues - now I'll open it up to guesses. Let's see what cybersleuth can come up with the right answer to what is on today's photo.
And since it's Sunday, I'm also posting a sunset in keeping with Scott's Sunset Sunday theme.
